  • Corenbaum v. Lampkin: California Appellate Decision Further Limits Damages Evidence for Personal Injury Plaintiffs
    • The Corenbaum decision is significant insofar as judges, following Howell, have continued to allow full medical billings into evidence through the side door. This practice has allowed plaintiffs a means of requesting inflated and unjustified damages awards. Now, a plaintiff with mesothelioma will no longer be allowed to circumvent Howell and introduce evidence of the larger billed amount by suggesting such evidence is relevant on other issues, such as pain and suffering calculations. Under Corenbaum, such evidence is not relevant on any damages issues. This decision should generally result in lower average jury verdicts for personal injury plaintiffs. Read More
