North Carolina Lawyer’s Weekly Top Personal Injury Award of 2020
Mar 02, 2021
Thursday, North Carolina Lawyer’s Weekly released its list of the top verdicts and settlements in North Carolina for 2020. Edwards Kirby reported the largest personal injury award in the state with a $14.25 million settlement for the families of three workers killed in a 2015 scaffolding collapse in Raleigh. Commenting on the success, David Kirby said the size of the settlement reflects the fact that a jury would likely be sympathetic because of the unsafe conditions that the men were working under.
In addition to securing the #1 personal injury award in the state, Edwards Kirby cases also made the list of top verdicts and settlements at # 19, for a sexual assault that occurred in a sorority house and #34, for a police shooting death.
