Insurance Limits and Case Value – A Clear Correlation?

From the 2015 PLUS Medical PL Symposium session “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: Do Limits Increase Claims Values?,” moderator Jonathan S. Ziss, Esq. (Goldberg Segalla) and plaintiffs’ attorney Michael F. Barrett, Esq. (Barrett Bendesky PC) discuss how insurance coverage limits correlate to overall case value. From the clip:

“The amount of insurance clearly drives the value of the case.”

Do you agree with Barrett’s take?
