Biggest Jury Verdicts in Ohio History

As Personal Injury Trial Lawyers, the lawyers at Sawan & Sawan know how powerful a jury verdict can be. While many personal injury cases settle well before trial, many catastrophic injury cases end up in front of a jury. This is because many insurance companies would rather take the risk of a large jury verdict, rather than simply admit responsibility and pay out large settlements. Other times, disputes arise about who is legally at fault that require a jury to rule. 

Regardless of why a case comes before a jury, history has shown that Ohio juries will render large verdicts when the circumstances support it. The following 12 Ohio Jury Verdicts – amounting to more than $150 million dollars – represent some of the largest verdicts in Ohio history.
