Accident Lawyer | More Surprises From The Trial Survey Group

In a previous post, I discussed the findings from the Trial Survey Group that young people (35 and under) have a propensity to award damages below the national average in personal injury lawsuits.

Another surprising find by the study was the fact that individuals who, politically, identify themselves as “Independents” have a propensity to award damages 17% below the national average. To put this finding in context, Democrats have a propensity to award damages 33% above the national average whereas Republicans have a propensity to award damages 15% below the national average. I am at a loss to explain why individuals who identify themselves as independents are the most guarded of the political groups in awarding money for personal injury lawsuits.
