Law360 Quotes WTO's Fred Yarger on 2024 Colorado Legislation to Watch

Date: 01.04.24

Law360 included comments from WTO Partner Frederick Yarger in the article “Colorado Legislation to Watch in 2024.”

Fred’s insights appear on the topic of damages reform. The Colorado Trial Lawyers’ Association plans to submit two ballot measures that would do away with statutory non-economic damages caps for wrongful death and catastrophic injury suits. 

Fred told Law360 damages caps are receiving more attention at a time when juries are increasingly awarding big verdicts. The publication quoted him as saying, “There’s certainly people who think the limits are too strict and pain and suffering shouldn’t be capped . . . The courts seem to be saying, ‘That really is a political dispute for the legislature.’”

Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell lawyers have taken more than 1,100 trials and arbitrations to verdict or award and 300 appeals to opinion all across the nation, with exceptional results for our clients. 

Established in 1998, WTO today numbers more than 110 trial lawyers and litigators. The firm represents sophisticated clients in high-stakes civil trials, appeals, and related litigation ranging from complex commercial to class actions to catastrophic torts.
