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.


Mr. Wieland is an excellent attorney who is compassionate and ethical. He is respected by his clients and his peers. He is an attorney who actually returns his clients’ telephone calls, which if you have been associated with other attorneys, you know this is rare. He answers all my questions no matter how long it takes. He is truly concerned about his clients.
