In a July 8, 2019 trial, where the defendant admitted fault for the accident, the jury was not convinced the October 2016 accident caused plaintiff any injuries.  Despite plaintiff’s claims that she accrued over $20,000 in medical expenses, a Henry County jury found in favor of the Defendant.  Attorney Andrea Baker obtained the defense verdict, after a one-day trial in which the jurors repudiated plaintiff’s requested award of $21,470.56 in medical expenses plus pain and suffering.
