The Kashi lawsuit is one of the largest environmental lawsuits in history. It has had some remarkable outcomes, including a victory by the United States Supreme Court. However, there have been other, less-impressive outcomes. This article will discuss those results, both good and bad, as you consider filing a Kashi lawsuit.
There is no doubt that there is a right way to file a lawsuit, and a wrong way. Many lawyers do not know this and make their judgments based on emotional appeals and suggestions from other attorneys. Unfortunately, this happens more often than not. In my experience, lawyers who file Kashi lawsuits rarely, if ever, take the time to listen to the complaint and arguments presented by their clients before making their decision.
The second major problem with Kashi suits is that they are extremely expensive to file.
You may be tempted to file for bankruptcy rather than go through the drawn-out litigation process required to get a lawsuit heard. That may be your choice, but keep in mind that filing bankruptcy invalidates your legal rights. It is better to spend a couple hundred dollars on an attorney to represent you than it is to pay for thousands of dollars in damages. Additionally, filing a Kashi lawsuit requires a very detailed record of all of the evidence necessary to support your claims.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, a Kashi lawsuit may not have the desired effect on the defendant.
A lawyer filing this type of lawsuit is not likely to end up suing the defendant for personal injury. It is not their job to seek monetary compensation for you. If they do, it will probably be substantially less than you would receive in a normal case. As a matter of fact, the plaintiff is rarely offered any monetary compensation in a Kashi lawsuit, and attorneys are even discouraged from going to this length.
On the other hand, a Kashi lawsuit can certainly be worth pursuing.
Once filed, your claim is considered a matter of public record. It can be reported on by the local newspaper and/or television station. If you file more than one lawsuit, the more exposure your claim will get.
In some cases, you may receive negative publicity from your Kashi lawsuit.
However, if you were foolish or ignorant about the laws surrounding your state, the news outlets may not focus on this aspect. Also, your friends, co-workers, and neighbors may not know about the lawsuit. Unless the local paper or television station got your story, you probably will not hear about this case in the national media. Keep in mind that the law is complicated and it is possible that you will lose or win your case; therefore, do your research before embarking on a Kashi lawsuit.
