What Happens When Cases Go To Trial In Shelby County?
A significant number of tort cases are filed each year in Shelby County. (Tort cases are claims for personal injury or wrongful death.) In fact, for the 2010-2011 reporting period, 1886 tort cases were filed with 79 going all the way to trial, but the injured party prevailed in only 42 of them. The average award was $81,887.00. In 2011-2012, 1766 tort cases were filed and 79 went to trial. The injured party received compensation in 50 of those cases, and the average award was $808,878.00. For 2012-2013, 1,747 tort cases were filed in Shelby County and 76 tort cases went to trial. The injured party won 44 of those trials with an average award of $247,527.00. For the 2013-2014 reporting period, 36 tort cases went to trial. One of those trials yielded a huge verdict of over $33 million. If that verdict is removed, the average verdict was slightly over $83,000.00. In the 2014-2015 reporting period, a similar dynamic was in play. There was one large verdict of $30,000,000.00. If that verdict is removed, the average verdict was $68,442.67. For the 2015-2016 reporting period, there were 2,065 tort cases filed. Of those, 79 cases went to trial and 40 of the injured parties won an average of $385,120. In 2016-2017, 2,272 injury and death cases were filed and 71 went to trial. The injury victim won 52 of those trials, and the average award was $706,484. During the 2017-2018 reporting period, 2,279 cases were filed, 66 were tried and the injury victim won 36 of those cases. The average verdict was $200,791. Last year, filings were up slightly to 2,411. Shelby County judges tried 71 cases last year. Of those 71 trials, the injury victim won 44 of them. The average verdict was up significantly to $2,6509,439. Like the 2014-2015 reporting period, the average verdict was likely so large due to a single incredibly high verdict.
