Case Conclusion Date:October 21, 2010

Practice Area:Car Accidents

Outcome:Jury Verdict of $387,557

Description:Plaintiff was involved in a car accident on October 5, 2005. Liability was admitted to, as this was a rear-end accident. While property damage estimates were considerable, the photographs seemingly showed minor property damage. A motion in limine was granted excluding the photographs and the property damage estimates from the evidence. Defendant argued that the second diagnostic knee arthroscopic surgery and the lower lumbar spine decompression were unrelated to the October 5, 2005, accident. Plaintiff demand was for $90,000. Defendant offer was for $50,000. The jury returned verdict of $384,000 for the Plaintiff.
