Under Pennsylvania State Law (in the Court of Common Pleas of Pennsylvania), we are not allowed to ask for a specific dollar amount in our Prayer for Relief.

We only have two (2) options:

Not In Excess of $50,000

•If not settled prior to the Arbitration date, your case will be heard by a panel of Arbitrators.

•An “Arbitration Award” will be entered in favor of you (the Plaintiff(s)) or in favor of the Defendant(s).

•The Award can be anywhere from $0.00 to $50,000.00.

•If unhappy, either side (Plaintiff(s) or Defendant(s)), have an automatic right to appeal from the Award of the Arbitrators.

•If properly appealed, the case will be scheduled for jury trial.

In Excess of $50,000

•If not settled prior to jury selection, your case will be entitled to a jury trial.

•The jury will enter a Verdict in favor of you (the Plaintiff(s)) or in favor of the Defendant(s).

•There are no limits on the amount of the Verdict, i.e. you could get $0.00 or you could get any amount in excess of $50,000. An unreasonably high Verdict may result in an Appeal by the defense.

•Either side (Plaintiff(s) or Defendant(s)) may attempt to Appeal the decision, but it is not an automatic right, and the Appeal may be denied by a higher court.

•If not appealed, the Verdict may be entered as a “Judgment.”
