     Past results are not a guarantee of future results.  The mere fact that a particular type of case was resolved for a particular amount should not be taken to indicate that all such similar cases would be resolved for a like sum.  Each case is unique and dependent on the particular facts and circumstances of that case, the law in effect at the time the case was decided, the strengths and weaknesses of the case, the severity of the damages, the credibility of the witnesses, and numerous other case-specific factors that influence the settlement or verdict amounts.
