A powerful strategy:
Worried about a big damage award against your high profile defendant doctor? Do you fear a multimillion dollar verdict and a media hailstorm to boot? How do you protect your client and eliminate those worries?
We have a powerful strategy to share with you. In the right case, consider stipulating to the maximum non-economic cap award before you get to trial. Why? If you can get that stipulation on the record, you may be able to exclude evidence of pain and suffering, and inflammatory trial testimony. And if there’s a plaintiff’s verdict, the stipulated non-economic cap is hardly newsworthy. Most likely, it will not be reported on the front page of the paper.
With these concerns behind you, your physician can focus on defending the medicine and winning the case. Even in the event of a plaintiff’s verdict, a stipulation to the full non-economic cap may be just “what the doctor ordered.”
