Jury Verdicts

An injury case can resolve in two ways: by settlement or by jury verdict. We handle each case as if it will go to verdict because many times offers of settlement offend our sense of justice. You see, when it comes to case evaluation, we’ve had major differences with the insurance industry.
The Difference:
$4,258,000 Money Offered and Rejected
-versus-
$81,500,051 Won by Jury Verdicts

The Jury Verdicts Below Illustrate Three Important Points

  • Trial lawyer Andy Siegel has proven time and time again his ability to obtain for his client a substantial jury verdict award in the face of a zero money offer of settlement by the insurance company.
  • Trial lawyer Andy Siegel has the confidence in his courtroom skillset to advise his clients not to take a substantial sum of money offered in settlement when he believes the sum, although large, does not represent fair and reasonable compensation.
  • Trial lawyer Andy Siegel has his litigation finger on the pulse of his trials and when the jury spoke — they spoke loudly — giving his client’s significant sums of money, well in excess of the money being offered to settle the case by the insurance company.
