Case Conclusion Date:June 23, 2004
Practice Area:Car / Auto Accident
Outcome:$25,000,000.00 - Jury Verdict (Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA)
Description:Unrelated third party slows down on I-95. Our client is behind this car and also slows down. Defendant, in a car-delivery truck, does not slow down at all and plows into our client. The truck, claiming to be an independent contractor, had a $1,000,000 policy that they tendered immediately. Most law firms would have stopped there. Two years of our investigation revealed that the trucker was really an employee of a large Orlando, Florida corporation, which had a $70 Million Dollar insurance policy. Defendant tried to blame the accident on the first car that slowed down - claiming that she must have stopped shortâ€¦they thought they would be able to get away with this defense because the first car was driven by a Jamaican woman, who had already returned to Jamaica. NKP conducted its investigation and found the lady, and flew to Jamaica to take her deposition. This lady confirmed that she didnâ€™t stop short at all.
