Description As we have seen in recent years, medical professional liability verdicts are increasing—due to a host of issues. MPL insurance companies, medical professionals, healthcare institutions, and the defense bar continue to be confronted with this threatening legal environment. One important factor that is impacting verdicts is the jury. It seems that juries are increasingly willing to make decisions based on an emotional response to the plaintiff. The result has been a significant rise of the “megaverdict” and seemingly clear cut cases returning with baffling outcomes in favor of the plaintiff. What can be done to better ensure that jurors are focused on the rule of law? In this webinar, expert speakers in jury research and consulting from U.S. Legal Support will discuss the latest strategies for weeding out jurors with a pre-disposed inclination to favor the allegedly injured party and for selecting those who will be most influenced by the facts of the case.
