Verdict Legal Definition

© Pribanic & Pribanic

Verdict legal definition: Legally, a verdict is defined as the decision made by a 12-person jury following a trial. It should be noted that verdicts must be accepted by a judge in order to be final. A decision made by a judge without a jury is NOT a verdict – it is legally defined as a judgment.

While the majority of personal injury cases (including those involving car accidents, slip and fall accidents, or product injuries) are settled out of court, a percentage goes to trial and require a jury to make a decision regarding liability and damages.
