Fulton Jury Finds Plaintiff Already Compensated By Liability Carrier
Ashley Rice successfully defended a UM case before a Fulton County jury, securing a judgment on which plaintiff could not recover from the UM carrier. Before trial, the plaintiff received $25,000 from the defendant’s liability carrier and sought additional recovery from her underinsured motorist carrier. The plaintiff introduced evidence of over $45,000 in healthcare charges and claimed injuries to her neck, shoulder, wrist, and back following a low-speed rear-end accident. On September 27, 2019, a Fulton County jury awarded the plaintiff less than $7,000.
