How are jury verdicts important?
The only leverage that we have in a personal injury case is a jury trial, and the ability to bring a case before a jury – six people, members of a person’s community to decide what’s fair and reasonable compensation – is the recourse that we have in order to make sure that our clients are properly compensated. Then, insurance companies know that our firm isn’t a firm that’s going to take whatever offer is on the table, whatever the last best offer is prior to trial. They understand that if the offer isn’t in the best interest of our client, then we’ll take that case to trial and we’ll achieve the results that are the right results for our client.
