Legal advertising off its recent peak nationally, but up strongly in New York and Los Angeles

Insurance professionals and investors have taken some comfort in conservative, federal judicial appointments. Wrong - at the more impactful state courts the trend is decidedly in the other direction.

Social inflation is back according to property/casualty insurance research firm Assured Research. The propensity for claimants to hire an attorney and for judges and juries to be influenced by legal advertising and the changing political winds is on the rise according to their recently-released report.

According to firm President William Wilt, "Social inflation is one of our most inquired-about research topics." He continued, "We've been researching the topic for the past few years with particular emphasis on trends in legal advertising, changes in the federal and state judiciary, and documenting the explosive growth in third party litigation finance."

Assured Research's newS report, "Social Inflation is Back!" provides fresh data and analysis on all three topics. For example, the report ties trends in legal advertising in the New York media market to its past research demonstrating the sharp rise in personal injury claim severity in New York and observations made by property/casualty insurers.

Interested industry professionals can receive the report as part of a free trial subscription to Assured Research's offerings. More information and how to contact the firm be can found at the Assured Research website (
