Attorney Joe Pappalardo, a partner at Gallagher Sharp LLP, was featured on “Great Quarter, Guys” to discuss “nuclear verdicts” and other topics related to truck accident defense litigation. “Great Quarter, Guys”, a podcast presented by FreightWaves and hosted by Andrew Cox, discusses various freight-focused subjects on each show.
Attorney Pappalardo has over 40 years of experience in defending trucking companies and insurance providers in cases of motor vehicle accidents. He has represented top-10 trucking companies in legal matters and is a member of the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA), the Transportation Lawyers Association (TLA), the Ohio Trucking Association, and other professional organizations.
To begin the show, Attorney Pappalardo and the host discuss what the term “nuclear verdict” means. They discuss that the term originally described large civil verdicts totaling over $10 million, however, Attorney Pappalardo emphasizes that verdicts of this amount have become more commonplace. He describes a nuclear verdict as “a verdict that will shock the conscience of the average person.” During the length of the podcast episode, they continue to explore the concept of nuclear verdicts and discuss other topics such as defense strategies, jury viewpoints, plaintiff lawyer approaches, laws in the trucking industry, and more.
