Chances of Your Case Getting Appealed
Appeals filings have actually been on the rise in recent years, according to U.S. Courts. The chances of any given trial case being appealed depend strongly on what is being litigated. However, overall it is somewhat common for a case to be taken to an appellate court. According to the Department of Justice, litigants in 15 percent of general civil cases file appeals. For tort cases, the chance of a litigant filing an appeal is 11 percent, for cases that involve contracts 21 percent of litigants file appeals, and 24 percent of litigants in property cases file appeals. Moreover, the “higher the stakes,” the greater the chances are of a court decision being challenged by being appealed. As such:
- One third of products liability cases and 18 percent of medical malpractice cases are appealed—both of which generally involve a great sum of money on the table due to large insurance policies; and
- On the other hand, only five percent of traffic collision trials go to appeals due to the relatively small awards, on average.
