The Biblical story of David & Goliath often is used as a metaphor for small plaintiffs seeking legal redress against a large and powerful defendant such as a multinational corporation.
If you’ve been injured by the actions or negligence of a company with enormous financial resources and an army of lawyers at its disposal, you may well feel like David as you begin consulting with your own attorney about how to get Goliath to pay for what happened to you.
The depressing reality is that all too often, unlike in the Bible story, David doesn’t win.
David might have seemed overmatched, but he was able to focus on the task before him. You, on the other hand, have bills to pay.
Your injury may have left you unable to work or otherwise generate adequate income, but the utility bills aren’t going to stop coming. The rent still needs to be paid. You and your family still need to eat.
That’s a lot to deal with while you’re trying to figure out how to beat Goliath. Bad news: Goliath knows that.
One of the biggest factors on the side of a wealthy defendant is time. A big company doesn’t have to worry about defending itself against your claims in court if it can drag the legal process out long enough to cause you financial distress. And that is, in fact, the primary tactic of many large legal departments when their opponent is an individual or a small business.
When that tactic works, the company’s lawyers never have to worry about determining what happened or how the company might be liable. They just have to worry about making you wait until your cupboard is bare. If it seems prudent to their lawyers, the company might then offer you a cash settlement at a small fraction of the amount you could be awarded by a jury in a civil trial.
Goliath then forgets about you and gets back to business as usual. It’s over for them, but it’s not over for you. The settlement you received might afford you about a year of expenses while you try to return to work, but you’ve exhausted your savings and are facing the task of rebuilding your life from scratch.
That is the longstanding paradigm of injustice that USClaims is helping to remedy.
