Sorry to say, Darin is right is saying this.  The major problem with the
tort law system today is the high cost of representations, even in
claims which are good and justified.  There are a lot of good claims
which are denied at the outset.  A lot of bad one's get compensated
and there are more which fall somewhere in the middle, which turn
out to be a real crap shoot.
That's why I try to stay out of the tort game and in business and corporate
law where I can have a lot more enjoyment and a lot less headaches.
