Jury Verdict Research found that the median jury verdict in arm nerve damage cases over the last 10 years was $81,095. This analysis is based on plaintiff verdicts rendered from March 2001 through March 2011. Arm nerve damage is defined by the study as injuries to the median nerve, radial nerve, ulnar nerve, musculacutaneous nerve, and axillary nerve which are all branches of the brachial plexus. Carpal tunnel injuries were, however, specifically excluded from this study.
