  1. Just 50,000 for liability? I applaud Moore’s suggestion that 500,000 should be the minimum, but this is still short of the trend. Following yet another attack, a Sonoma County jury recently awarded 1 million for facial lacerations requiring surgery. Considering the future probability for lost use of hands, for injuries affecting ambulation, and for loss of life, this precedent easily pushes future judgments into multiple millions. Actuaries must adjust accordingly, and legislators should take note!
