Legal Malpractice Settlement and Verdicts in Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C.
Metro Verdicts Monthly recently provided data on legal malpractice settlements and verdicts in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The median legal malpractice settlement/verdict in Washington D.C. was a whopping $262,500.00. In Virginia and Maryland, the median legal malpractice settlement/verdict was $212,500.00 and $140,211.00 respectively.
What explains the incredible disparity between Washington, D.C. and Maryland and why is Maryland's median so low? I really have no idea. As always, I find this type of data very interesting yet useless.
