Brandt Obtains Defense Verdict in Admitted Fault Case
Despite the defendant’s admission of fault, on February 22, 2016, Attorney Andrew Brandt obtained a defense verdict in front of a Fulton County jury. Mr. Brandt’s client admitted that she caused the rear-end accident that caused extensive vehicle damage. After leaving the scene of the accident in her own vehicle, plaintiff complained of soft tissue injury and began treating with a chiropractor the following day. Despite a dozen trips to the chiropractor, and undergoing cervical and lumbar MRIs, the jury did not believe that plaintiff was injured as a result of the accident. Eight months prior to trial, the defendant had extended statutory settlement offers in the amount of $3,500. Plaintiff’s attorney, in closing arguments, asked the jury to award plaintiff $25,000.
