Shareholder Christopher P. Malone and Sr. Associate Rachel B. Beauchamp were pleased to achieve a defense verdict for their client after a four day jury trial in Hennepin County, MN. The personal injury trial centered on a semi-tractor and pedestrian accident, including defense of the claimed liability, which involved testimony from an accident reconstructionist and toxicologist. The trial also involved a claimed traumatic brain injury, and significant orthopedic leg injury requiring multiple surgeries – three separate doctors testified regarding the nature and scope of Plaintiff’s claimed injuries. The parties stipulated to past medical expense damages of $145,0000. Plaintiff asked the jury to award between 3.5 and 4.5 million dollars for Plaintiff’s claimed permanent injuries and lifestyle changes. The jury awarded both a complete defense verdict on liability and, for damages, awarded no future damages and only $50,000 in past pain and suffering.
