Mary Khadir is suing the manufacturer of her car because

Mary Khadir is suing the manufacturer of her car because of a defect that she believes caused her to have an accident, keeping her out of work for a year. She is suing the company for $3.5 million. The company has offered her a settlement of $700,000, of which Mary would receive $600,000 after lawyers’ fees. Her lawyer has advised her that she has a 50% chance of winning her case. If she loses, she will incur lawyers’ fees and court costs of $75,000. If she wins, she is not guaranteed her full requested settlement. Her lawyer believes that there is a 50% chance she could receive the full settlement, in which case Mary would get $2 million after her lawyer takes his cut, and a 50% chance that the jury will award her a lesser amount of $1 million, of which Mary would get $500,000. Using decision-tree analysis, decide if Mary should sue the manufacturer.
