13 Movies Like The Verdict

Frank Galvin, a once-promising attorney, is now an alcoholic who follows ambulances around. Mickey Morrissey, a friend, and former business partner does him a favor by sending him a medical malpractice case that is almost certainly going to be settled for a significant amount of money. Anesthesia was administered to a young woman while she was giving birth in a Catholic hospital. After the birth, the woman choked on her vomit and was left in a vegetative state while she was being kept alive by a ventilator. Her sister and brother-in-law, who brought the lawsuit, aim to use the money from the settlement to pay for her medical expenses.

A trip to see the unconscious woman in the hospital leaves Frank feeling profoundly shaken up. After some time has passed, a representative of the Catholic diocese makes a generous offer to settle the dispute. Frank makes his decision to deny the offer and announces his plan to take the matter to trial without first consulting the victim’s family, which stuns all of the parties involved, including the judge who is presiding over the case and the victim’s relatives. After meeting Laura earlier in the pub, Frank develops love feelings for her and begins a relationship with her.
