Jury Verdicts & Settlements

An injury case can resolve in two ways: by settlement or by jury verdict. Either way, we’re ready to fight to bring justice to your cause. This sampling of notable case results reflects our repeated success as personal injury and medical malpractice litigation attorneys. Remember … when selecting an injury lawyer, results matter.

We handle each case as if it will go to verdict because many times offers of settlement offend our sense of justice. When it comes to case evaluation, we’ve had major differences with the insurance industry.
1/2
The difference between the money offered by the insurance company and rejected—and the ultimate jury award in cases litigated to verdict—is proof positive of our willingness and ability to fight our courtroom battles to the end.
The Difference:
$4,258,000 Money Offered and Rejected
-versus-
$81,500,051 Won by Jury Verdicts

The Jury Verdicts Above 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.
