Cobb County Jury Refuses to Accept Opinion of Plaintiff’s Shoulder Surgeon
On June 25 and 26, 2018, Jonathan Adelman successfully tried a clear fault motor vehicle collision case to a defense verdict in the State Court of Cobb County. The jury deliberated for two and one-half hours before determining that plaintiff’s alleged shoulder injury and resulting surgery were not related to the accident, despite the testimony of plaintiff’s surgeon. Plaintiff had documented healthcare expenses in the amount of $70,000 and lost wages in the amount of $6,000. Pre-suit, the defendant’s insurance carrier had offered $10,000 to settle. Plaintiff would not consider settling for a dime less than the policy limits.
