Hope you enjoyed today’s talk.
I think our discussion topic for this week is pretty clear, given the talk. I want to know what you think about these settlement-mills!
On the one hand, they aren’t at all honest about their practices, and it might even be the case that they conspire with insurance companies. So they are bound to leave some claimants with far less money than they deserve. On the other hand, they are cheap, quick, and accessible. They might be the very sort of quick remedy that the poorer population (especially with small claims) are looking for.
I’m personally genuinely conflicted about these firms. They are unprofessional, and as I said in class, their lack of transparency is certainly worrisome. But they do seem to be doing good. Without them, many people would sustain harm without any remedy.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
