Cobb County Jury Finds in Favor of Defendant in an Admitted Fault Case
On June 14, 2015, Jonathan Adelman and Emaly Standridge obtained a defense verdict from a Cobb County Jury in an admitted fault case. Plaintiff made no complaint of injury at the scene, but hired an attorney the day after the accident and subsequently began chiropractic treatment for alleged soft tissue injuries. The defense included evidence of multiple complaints of prior similar injuries. In closing, plaintiff’s counsel asked the jury to award $17,000 in medical expenses, plus $10,000 for pain and suffering. Prior to trial, the defendant offered $11,000 to settle the case. After less than an hour of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant.
