Nuclear Verdicts Trend Persists in 2022

June 7, 2022

A troublesome trend for 2021 is continuing into this year. The threat of large, outlier verdicts has always been a tension point in litigation, especially in the medical liability landscape. “Nuclear verdicts” are not a new concept; however, they’ve grown in size and frequency at an alarming rate.
Iowa and Minnesota courts just recently came in with verdicts at or above the $100 million mark.
ISMIE will continue to monitor this trend and its impact on medical liability. If you have questions, please contact the ISMIE Legal Division by email.
