Erie Lawyers: $275,000 Verdict Stands

November 5, 2010, ERIE, PA -- Judges sometimes will reduce a jury's award of damages if the amount is excessive. However, the amount of the verdict has to be shocking and clearly excessive. We've posted an article in our car accident library about one recent verdict in which the Court was asked to reduce the jury's award.

In Bartowski v. Plappert (C.P. Bucks August 12, 2010), the jury awarded $275,000 in damages to a woman injured in a rear end accident case. The defense asked the judge to reduce the award, arguing that it was clearly excessive. The judge refused. For more on the details of the case, see the article HERE .
