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.


I greatly appreciate all you’ve done for me. You have no idea how this money will help me right now. It couldn’t come at a better time. It means more to me than I could ever explain and it’s all because of you. You’re amazing and I will always send anyone I know your way if they are seeking counsel.

Al was a great attorney,he was extremely helpful. If I ever needed another Workers’ Comp attorney again, I would definitely hire Al. His assistant Melody was very helpful to when Al was out of the office or helping another client. These are great people they treated me like I was family.
