CaseMetrix, LLC is a real-time settlement and verdict database of personal injury cases which allows you to see exactly how much various insurers are voluntarily paying to settle cases. Attorneys use the resource, consisting of 95% settlements and 5% verdicts, both as a reference and negotiation tool to make sure they never accept an offer that’s too low. In addition to searching by specific injuries & treatment, CaseMetrix can address common defenses such as prior related injuries, allegedly conservative venues and medical causation issues. Call Kim White at 404.849.6422 for a free online look at the database.
