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.


Al Hilado won my SSDI case for me. They helped me during a time that my life was really hard. I am so thankful to be receiving help now from Social Security. I would highly recommend Al as your Lawyer to win your case.
