Double Defense Verdict for Brandt in Gwinnett County
Attorney Andrew Brandt obtained a double defense verdict in the State Court of Gwinnett County on August 9, 2016. A disputed fault case involving a parking lot accident and minor property damage took only one day to try. Plaintiffs, whose last pretrial demand was $100,000 a piece, alleged over $25,000 in total healthcare specials. At trial, Mr. Brandt conceded to the jury that plaintiffs may be able to prove that defendant was at fault for the accident, but argued that there was no way the accident was the proximate cause of plaintiffs’ alleged injuries. In less that forty minutes, the jury came back with a defense verdict as to both plaintiffs. Defendant’s last offer on the eve of trial was $1,000 per plaintiff.
