Verdicts and Settlements for Rear End Truck Accidents

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
A Jury Verdict Research study found that the median award in rear-end truck accident cases is $93,909. Remarkably, plaintiffs recover damages in only 63 percent of truck accident cases that go to verdict. That study is based on verdicts rendered throughout the United States from 1997 to 2007.  While these statistics are a little bit dated, I think they fairly reflect the median value.  

This is the median not the average truck accident verdict. Clearly, the average big rig crash verdict would be substantially higher because a full twelve percent of the verdicts in rear end truck accident cases are over $1 million.
