Caps on Damages and Jury Verdicts are Bad

By: Admin

Recently an appeals court ruled that the UCF Athletic Assoc only has to pay $200,000 of a $10 million jury verdict because of caps on damages. The court found that UCFAA was a state agency and citizens can only collect $200,000 from a state agency no matter what the actual damages, medical bills or lost wages are for the injured person. So a careless and negligent government can cause serious injuries and does not have to pay the person or family any more than $200,000 no matter what a jury finds. Caps will not promote safe practices and should not be part of our society.


Mr. Hilado is an excellent lawyer; he knows and dominates his profession very well. From the moment of my first consultation until favorably presented and won my case, he always kept me up to date throughout the whole process. I personally, as well as my family, we are all grateful for his professionalism and representation, and we recommend his legal services.


Attorneys you can trust. My daughter was in an automobile accident several months ago. She was really hurt and being only 19 really didn’t know how to take up for herself with regards to the other persons insurance company. They continued to call her and pressure her to accept their offer. Having known Glen Wieland for some time, I recommended that she contact his firm. What good advice that has turned out to be. They have watched out for her and made sure that she receives the medical attention that she needs. I feel so much better knowing that she is being properly represented.
