Find concerning about a particular product, accident or cause of action and use that information to evaluate potential cases, craft your litigation strategy or inform your discussions with clients, insurers, neutrals or opposing counsel. Attorneys, remember this dictum: "Know thy adversary?" Get every case we ever published in which that attorney appeared, along with full details of the case.
- Judges, Mediators and Arbitrators. It's very important to know about the judge, or other neutral, who will hear your case; it's critically important if he or she is the trier of fact. Use VerdictSearch to get the most valuable "history lesson" you will ever receive.
- Defendants. What firms do they use? What experts? What are their trial tactics? Who has faced them before, and what can you learn about them? VerdictSearch can supply you with case-winning data.
- Custom Statistical Research. Our researchers can perform complex custom research, including statistical analysis of trends, complete with charts and graphs. This is valuable not only in your everyday practice as you look into new markets to pursue, but it also can be helpful for use at CLE events, in client presentations, for media interviews and much more. Contact our Research Department at 800-832-1900 to inquire about custom research.
What Jurisdictions Does VerdictSearch.com Cover?
VerdictSearch gathers and reports verdicts and settlements from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and includes in its database more than 200,000 reports. However, not all of this information is yet online and the depth of data varies considerably from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Please note that some of these jurisdictions, especially California, Connecticut, D.C., Georgia, Michigan, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, New York, Rhode Island, Texas have been reporting verdicts and settlements for many years. While not all of that data is yet available electronically, via the VerdictSearch website, for an additional charge you can call our research department at 800-832-1900 to discuss your research needs. You can also feel free to ask for any other assistance in conducting a search.
How Do I Make the Most of My Verdict Research?
Research into verdicts and settlements is relevant at virtually every stage of the litigation process:
- Case intake. Evaluate the prospects for a matter before you take on a new client. Given the soaring cost of litigation, the most important matters you handle may be those you choose not to take.
- Client expectations. With malpractice and grievance claims on the rise, including wrongful settlement actions, a disappointed client is a dangerous client. Get the objective facts on similar cases and use them to temper unrealistic client expectations inflated by emotion or fueled by sensationalistic media reports.
- Expert witnesses. Everyone knows it's the experts – yours and your opponent's – who make or break a case. What better way to prepare than to get the goods – the actual cases – on the experts on both sides? Whether you're looking for an expert or impeaching one, verdict research is an invaluable tool.
- Court. Before you file, find out whether you're heading into hostile territory by surveying the verdicts returned by jurors and judges in a particular court.
- Settlement negotiations. There simply is no better settlement tool, for the plaintiff or the defense, than a well-chosen collection of verdict and settlement reports.
- Trial strategy. All leading litigators agree on one thing: The key to trial success is preparation. Get the facts on opposing counsel, judges and mediators, defendants, products, causes of action, injuries, demonstrative evidence, and much more.
- Picking juries. While VerdictSearch can't help you make a choice on a particular juror, we can help you understand juror attitudes in actual cases in actual courtrooms. Many lawyers find this information invaluable when picking their juries.
- On appeal. In many cases, the trial is just the beginning. VerdictSearch, through publications like the Judicial Review of Damages, tracks verdicts on rehearing and appeal, providing you with valuable insight on this all-important decision.
