The medical professional liability industry is currently experiencing an increase in the severity of jury verdicts. Jurors are instructed not to base their verdicts on what was learned or discovered later. While jurors are not permitted to use hindsight in arriving at their decisions, they often do. This presentation will retrospectively examine factors affecting verdict severity and will demonstrate how fundamental risk management principles can help result in a successful defense.
