This commercial law case involves a poorly advised high-low agreement in Vermont. Without the the plaintiff’s consent, the defendant attorney entered into an agreement that limited the recoverable damages in his client’s case significantly. The resulting verdict in the case was well over one million dollars. Due to the nature of the high-low agreement, the attorney’s client only received a fraction of the total award. The attorney also incurred a number of expenses while pursuing the case, which did more to reduce the total recovery that the plaintiff received after the case was concluded. In addition to the high-low agreement, the attorney also reached an agreement with the medical center that treated the plaintiff’s injuries for the payment of medical expenses. Ultimately, the only person who benefited from the agreement was the attorney, who had his expenses covered.
