Defense Prevails in Admitted Fault Cobb County Case
Following a two (2) day trial in Cobb County, Ashley Rice secured a defense verdict in an admitted fault case from a rear-end motor vehicle accident. The plaintiff introduced bills totaling $37,000 and underwent five (5) months of chiropractic and orthopedic treatment, including facet joint injections. The jury agreed with the defense that the plaintiff failed to meet her burden of proving that the relatively small accident was the proximate cause of the claimed injuries. Pre-suit, the plaintiff had demanded $100,000.
