Prof helps law firm predict future

first_imgA London firm has teamed up with academics to create what it claims is a scientific way of predicting case outcomes.Hodge Jones & Allen said the modelling technique will help it to better assess the viability of its 1,200 personal injury cases.Professor Andrew Chester, an expert in economic management at University College London, studied information about the outcomes of 600 cases over the course of a year.Cases were assessed by the demographics of the claimants, the nature and cause of the injury, the type of defendant and quality of their solicitor, the number and type of witnesses, corroborating evidence and the time between injury and instruction.Key determining factors to emerge in the prediction model were the age and working status of the claimant and the time between injury and instruction. Witnesses and reliable evidence were not important in predicting a win or loss, but became more crucial in achieving higher damages.HJA said the study produced ‘robust models’ to predict the likelihood of cases being successful. The firm now plans to turn these into Excel-based routines to help make initial assessments of cases.Patrick Allen, senior partner of HJA, said that these models will not replace the experience and judgement of the firm’s ‘exceptional’ enquiry handling team, but would ‘provide an additional aid to them in a world where it is no longer good enough to take a case on with a 50% chance of success and where fees are restricted to a few hundred pounds’.The firm aims to test the model against actual outcomes and is looking to expand it to other areas of the business involving high-volume work.last_img read more

I mean, I had a really bad ankle sprain in January. Related Newscenter_img “I definitely wanted to have a better plan. I probably should have seen a trainer in Australia,” she added.”I definitely thought about that, because I was, like I said, the first thing was I’m finally healthy. The last thing I want is to have another bad ankle sprain.”So I just wanted to get some compression on it and tape it even stronger and that way I can at least try to finish the match.” “I was like, instantly, ‘No, this can’t happen.

We’ll see tomorrow (Monday).”Mouratoglou echoed Williams’ assessment of the injury, though he also indicated they will have to wait to have a full understanding of her condition.Stellar SerenaThe six-time singles champion defeats Martic in straight sets and scores her 99th career victory in Flushing [email protected] | #USOpen pic.twitter.com/9wTdfvAOJT— US Open Tennis (@usopen) September 1, 2019He said: “There is the video, but what is more important is how she feels and how the ankle looks.”The ankle looks okay.
