Defense Verdict in Disputed Fault Case
Marcia Freeman recently obtained a defense verdict in a hotly contested, disputed liability case in Fulton County. It was a “who ran the red light” case involving a well-spoken, likeable plaintiff with extensive driving experience. Our insured driver (a minor) had been dismissed pursuant to service and statute of limitations motions. The case continued against the named insured on various agency theories of liability. Shauna Hill was instrumental at trial in having plaintiff’s investigator excluded and the live chiropractor’s testimony limited. Plaintiff presented medical special damages, lost wages, and asked for an award for future pain and suffering. After a brief deliberation, the jury returned with a defense verdict.
