Our lawyers have handled scores of lawsuits where the primary injury was head injuries and headaches.  This page is about projecting settlement amounts and jury payouts in head injury and headache lawsuits

Mostly Subjective Injuries

I don’t get many headaches, a blessing I attribute to good hydration and genetic good fortune.  I’ve never had a traumatic head injury and have only had two concussions.  On the rare occasion that I do get headaches, they are debilitating. It is hard to enjoy life when you have anything north of a mild headache.

Our law firm has handled a lot of vertebrae fractures in car, motorcycle, and truck accident cases over the last 20 years.  A vertebrae fracture can be a serious, significant, and permanent injury to the musculoskeletal system. You wouldn’t wish this fracture on anyone.

What is the Settlement Value of a Vertebrae Fracture Case?

One study found that the national median award at trial in personal injury cases for a vertebra fracture is $112,537.  The median award for multiple vertebrae fractures is almost double the single vertebra amount, $207,000.

This is far lower than our law firm’s average settlement in vertebrae fracture cases. Why? There could be some jurisdictional differences. Because this is not Maryland data, but national data. The pool for these statistics may also include hairline fractures. When I’m talking vertebrae fracture claims, I’m not talking about hairline fractures.

The hernia mesh lawsuits have been litigated for years.  For victims seeking settlement compensation, it has been a never-ending road.  But with the court bouncing back from COVID, two trials are on the way that could be the bridge to a class action hernia mesh settlement to finally bring victims overdue settlement compensation for the harm done to them.

Over the last decade, countless individuals who underwent hernia repair surgeries subsequently suffered pain and serious injuries caused by a defective hernia mesh implant that was used in their procedure. There are currently thousands of hernia mesh lawsuits currently pending across the country and they have been consolidated into three separate class action MDLs.

Progress in all the hernia mesh class action MDLs got interrupted by the pandemic and resulting court closures. Now things are opening back up and it is shaping up to be an action-packed summer on the hernia mesh litigation front. In this post, we will look at the current status of each of the 3 separate hernia mesh MDLs and what to expect this summer as the first round of bellwether test trials get underway.

March 15, 2022: The Wilkerson bellwether trial is underway. A few weeks ago, 3M filed a motion seeking to dismiss all claims on the grounds that Wilkerson failed to list the 3M lawsuit as an asset when he filed bankruptcy. Over the weekend, Judge Rogers issued an order denying the motion because 3M failed to show that Wilkerson intentionally concealed the 3M lawsuit in an effort to manipulate his bankruptcy proceedings. She also pointed out that the omission was irrelevant because Wilkerson’s bankruptcy was a Chp. 13 which proposed full repayment of his creditors.

Monsanto Roundup lawsuits have led Bayer to pay billions of dollars in settlement compensation payouts to victims and their families with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
