Lawyers.com has launched a weekly news feature reporting on some of the largest and most interesting jury awards won by individuals in recent personal injury cases. The feature, called “Editor’s Choice: Jury Awards Edition,” appears every Friday on the Lawyers.com blog, a top online destination for practical analysis of consumer legal news.
We know from site traffic analysis of Lawyers.com that consumers are keenly interested in learning about large monetary judgments being awarded to individual citizens. The Lawyers.com 10-person news team finds significant jury awards that people want to know about and adds commentary to these cases to help explain their potential impact.
Examples of verdicts covered in the first Lawyers.com Jury Awards Editions include:
- Father and son win $25 million in child abuse suit against hospital.
- $4.2 million jury award in wrongful death – medical malpractice case.
- Benzene exposure leads to $7.5 million jury verdict for truck driver’s family.
“It’s not a lottery,” Amy Widman, Assistant Professor of Law at Northern Illinois University told Lawyers.com. Widman has written extensively on health care and tort reform. “The data shows juries get things right most of the time.”
You are invited to send details of major new jury verdicts awarded to individuals to me at Larry.Bodine@lexisnexis.com.
