No Jury Misconduct Shown
As personal injury lawyers, we understand the importance of proper legal remedies for errors made during a trial. When it comes to jury errors, the appropriate remedy depends on the cause of the error.
If the error was due to misconduct, a new trial may be necessary. On the other hand, if the error was an honest mistake, remittitur may be the more suitable remedy.
When it comes to wrongful death cases involving a parent, the damage award must take into account the relationship between the deceased and the plaintiff. It is important to ensure that the award fairly compensates the plaintiff for their loss.
In a recent case, an appellant attempted to show that excluded evidence, indicating that the deceased was disappointed with the plaintiff, was relevant to the plaintiff’s loss. However, the appellant failed to prove that this evidence should have been included in the trial.
Additionally, the appellants were unable to prove that the plaintiff’s arguments caused the jury to engage in misconduct when calculating damages. A jury inquiry demonstrated that the error was not due to the plaintiff’s arguments.
