Verdicts

Why do we note our past jury verdicts and settlements? The courts and our adversaries are aware that we have a track record of obtaining “record” verdicts. If your case must be tried to a verdict, no one will be better prepared to do so than Pegalis and Erickson. However, your goal and our goal is a financial recovery that is adequate (whether by settlement or verdict) and for your peace of mind that justice has been served. When both these goals are met, we have won the case for our client. While it would not be practical to list all of the verdicts and settlements won for our clients over a more than a forty-year time span, we conservatively estimate we’ve won more than 2000 cases. Many of those cases have been very complex, and were previously turned down by others.(See Safety Page)
