It may be tempting to assume that an automobile company that has suffered a highly-publicized legal setback regarding the safety of one of its models will settle quickly and fairly when faced with new claims from injured consumers or their surviving family members. Making that assumption would be a mistake, as plaintiffs have seen repeatedly in wrongful death or negligence cases against some of the biggest vehicle manufacturers in the country.
As with any other product manufacturer, an auto manufacturer’s primary motivation is to generate profits for its shareholders. One successful wrongful death or liability suit isn’t going to change that. Ten thousand such suits aren’t going to change that. If anything, it is likely to make it that much more difficult for you to obtain a just or quick settlement.
Companies in industries that are accustomed to product liability lawsuits have retrofitted their business planning to account for the costs of that litigation. Such companies are not blindsided when found liable for death or injury; money to pay those judgments and settlements is a part of their annual budgets.
You may have been preparing for your civil suit for months. The company you’re suing has been preparing for your lawsuit, or others like it, for years. They’re ready for you. So if you’re counting on a legal settlement or court judgment to pay long overdue bills or meet other living expenses, you may not be ready for them.
A corporate defendant’s legal strategy will be geared not only towards reducing the size of any possible payout, but on delaying any payments as long as possible so that they can be better anticipated by the company’s business operations. Your need for that money helps their position at the settlement negotiation table.
