New Jersey Personal Injury Attorney Asks – What’s Your Opinion on Tort Reform?

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Too many times, I open the Camden County Bar Association’s newsletter, “The Barrister” which has information about recent verdicts coming out of Camden County which read “No Cause.” A no cause verdict in New Jersey means that the jury found in favor of the defendant, either finding that they didn’t have responsibility for whatever cause of action was pled, or finding that the plaintiff didn’t suffer damages from whatever the defendant allegedly did. For example, in the most recent edition, December 2011, of the 17 verdicts reported, 11 were “No Cause” or “Defense” verdicts, three settled during trial and 3 received jury verdicts. Of the three, our firm handled the middle verdict case, in which our client received a jury award of $175,000.00. This is a troubling trend and one that is especially interesting in light of the continued calls for “tort reform.” Has the call for tort reform made it almost impossible for truly injured parties to have their “Day in Court?” I don’t know the answer to this question, but at least in Camden County, it at least raises the question about the effect of calls for “tort reform” on juries today.
