How we calculate settlements & verdicts

Below, you’ll see our cases split into separate sections for verdicts and settlements. A verdict is a decision made by a jury or trial on a given case. A settlement is the formal resolution of a lawsuit between disputing parties that takes place without proceeding to a final court judgment. The first sum listed is the total value of the settlement or verdict plus the expected yield of the annuity chosen. This is the maximum value of the settlement or verdict, because it takes into account the value of the annuity as it increases over time. The second value is the total value of the settlement or verdict (which includes the cost of the annuity, costs and attorney fees, medical liens, and the value put into a special needs trust).

To see a detailed explanation of what the below numbers mean, please visit our page on how we calculate our verdicts and settlements.
