More than 600 experts in trial law and personal injury medicine contributed to Anatomy of a Personal Injury Lawsuit, including Michael Maggiano, the founder and senior partner of New Jersey-based personal injury firm Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, who wrote the section on noneconomic damages.
Maggiano wrote the section on noneconomic damages for Anatomy of a Personal Injury Lawsuit by drawing on his vast experience helping clients pursue fair compensation. Noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium or companionship, are an extremely important part of many personal injury cases, and they are often seen as less important than “tangible” damages like medical expenses and lost wages; because of this, it is crucial for new attorneys and seasoned veterans alike to re-examine the way they look at noneconomic damages and come up with a solid strategy for justifying these damages in court.
Maggiano and his fellow attorneys at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi have secured a number of large damage awards for clients, including several million- and multi-million dollar settlements. Maggiano has also received a number of awards and recognitions in recent years, including:
- “10 Superb” rating from AVVO Lawyer Ratings
- “AV Preeminent” rating from the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review service
- Listed as one the Best Lawyers in America since 2006
- Named as one of the 125 Alumni of Distinction by Chicago-Kent College of Law
- Gold Medal for Distinguished Services (highest award given by the New Jersey Association for Justice)
- 2013 recipient of the New Jersey Bar Foundation Award for Excellence in Continuing Legal Education
- Membership in the Fellow American College of Trial Lawyers (reserved for the top 1 percent of trial attorneys in the country)
