Jury Verdict Research reported this month on Florida personal injury lawsuit verdicts. The median – not be confused with average which is much higher – money recover in Florida personal injury lawsuits that go to trial is $185,000. Florida personal injury lawyers can expect to receive a verdict for their clients in 60 percent of lawsuits that go to trial.
Putting these number in context, the national median personal injury verdict is $35,000, and personal injury victims recover about half of the time. In other words, you can drive a truck through the difference between Florida and the rest of the nation. Florida voters may go for caps at the ballot box, but when faced with live human beings, they have a very different approach.
