Another Defense Verdict in Cobb County on an Admitted Fault Case
Rakhi McNeill secured another defense verdict in Cobb County following a two day trial on September 1, 2022. Plaintiffs were a mother and daughter who claimed mostly soft tissue injuries following a minor accident where the defendant admitted fault. Both waited two weeks before seeking any treatment. One plaintiff claimed three (3) months of chiropractic care and medical bills totaling $8,500. The second plaintiff claimed a concussion in addition to her soft tissue injuries and received chiropractic, orthopaedic, and physical therapy treatment. She alleged $30,000 in medical specials, future damages for continuing injuries, and pain and suffering for the rest of her life. After deliberating for 40 minutes, the jury returned with a verdict in favor of the defendant as to both plaintiff’s claims. The jury agreed that plaintiffs failed to meet their burden of proof and did not believe that plaintiffs could have been injured in such a minor accident.
