Using numeric probabilities offers lots of advantages when dealing with uncertainties in litigation.
For one, probabilities avoid risky client misunderstandings about what vague words like "good chances" and "reasonable prospects" actually mean (see more here). Probabilities are also a fundamental building block for doing complex case evaluation using the decision analysis techniques that underpin Litigaze.
But it's not always easy making a shift to using numeric probabilities when we're so used to talking about uncertainties in words.
To make this shift easier, our new probability guide offers a simple way to consistently identify numeric probabilities based on common everyday words for expressing uncertainty.
