Here is a preview of the October 2018 issue of the Miss. Jury Verdict Reporter:

  • $3,500,000 verdict- Jackson federal court truck negligence case (9/14/18);
  • $754,366 verdict- Madison County breach of contract case (7/18/18);
  • $350,000 verdict- Gulfport federal court truck negligence case (9/28/18);
  • $5,100 verdict- Lee County car wreck case (8/28/18);
  • defense verdict- Hinds County dental malpractice case (9/7/18);
  • defense verdict- Oxford federal court car wreck case (9/18/18); and
  • defense verdict- Lamar County medical malpractice case (9/19/18).

My Take:

These verdicts help explain why: (1) lawyers bomb the airwaves with commercials for car wreck cases; and (2) many plaintiff attorneys refuse to even screen a medical malpractice case.
