By now, we are all used to seeing our TV unfold with dramatic courtroom drama. We often forget that, entertainment value aside, these fictional legal battles do not in any way represent real life trials accurately, or much of anything in our real judicial system. The basic fact is, the vast majority of lawsuits that are actually filed are settled before trial, or “out of court,” and it is actually a rare legal case that finishes up with silver voiced and well-coiffed lawyers summing up their interesting cases with oratorically brilliant insights and wits before things cut to a commercial break.

This is notably true in civil lawsuits which are about one party or person suing another party or person for compensatory and/or punitive damages due to, breach of contract, malpractice or negligence. Settlements outside the courtroom far outnumber actual trials. As an example, cases involving claims for damages after suffering Legionnaire’s disease have been the focus of many aggressive lawsuits, claims, settlements and a few trials over past years, most of those lawsuits and claims got settled between the parties before any court could rule on the matter in one way or another. This is why it is not at all unusual for there to be front page news story about one or more victims who got Legionnaires Disease claiming or suing for a large amount of compensatory damages being followed up several months, or even years after that, by small mentions on page 16 of the newspaper, that the suit or suits had been settled outside the courtroom for an undisclosed sum of money. When cases are going to go to trial, you need a Trial Awards in Legionnaires’ Disease Lawsuits lawsuit attorney like those at Carabin Shaw.

Even when a Legionnaires Disease case does make its’ way to trial, the outcome of that trial is not particularly predictable. In some cases, one key element cannot be legally proven and no damages are awarded. Keep in mind that while the attorney for a victim of disease may well have all the relevant facts on his side, the defense attorney will argue strenuously that the plaintiff may not have actually contracted Legionnaires Disease where and when the alleged Legionella bacterium was supposed to have been found, and that, even if he did, the infection may not have resulted from negligent acts or failure to act by the defendant. In point of fact, there are serious and experienced law firms who devote most of their time to limiting the monetary and legal exposure of different kinds of defendants in Legionnaires Disease cases and similar actions regarding other diseases.

Do note though, that some Legionnaires Disease lawsuits over the years have gone to a full trial on the merits and went on to deliver a verdict, handed down by either a judge or by a jury. In some of these cases, monetary awards to the plaintiff have been quite substantial. In the actual real world, you need a firm which goes after and gets Trial Awards in Legionnaires Disease Lawsuits.
