Kevin Reardon Successfully Defends Uninsured Motorist Carrier
In September 2016, Kevin Reardon successfully defended an uninsured motorist carrier in a two (2) day trial in Bulloch County. Plaintiff alleged post-concussive syndrome as well as neck and back injuries. Her treating neurologist directly related plaintiff’s symptoms and need for treatment to the accident. Total medical specials were $11,200. In addition, plaintiff who was a medical doctor alleged lost income of nearly $40,000. Prior to trial, the liability carrier had tendered its policy limits of $25,000. Plaintiff’s counsel asked for an award of $189,000. After deliberating for less than an hour, the jury awarded plaintiff a verdict of less than the medical specials resulting in zero liability for the uninsured motorist carrier.
