Defense Verdict in the Face of $39 Million Award

Troy A. Clark obtained a defense verdict after a ten day trial where Plaintiff was asking the jury for $39,936,868.72.

An 11 year old minor entered a marked crosswalk in the morning of November 22, 2011 against a red traffic light. Plaintiff was rendered into a vegetative state as a result of the accident. Plaintiff incurred $1,752,582.50 in medical expenses as a result of the subject accident. Plaintiff sought $39,936,868.72 at trial.

Bremer Whyte was able to exclude Plaintiff’s liability expert prior to trial as well as several other key pieces of evidence that Plaintiff was intending to rely upon at trial. Bremer Whyte argued that the Plaintiff was the proximate cause of the accident by crossing against a red light. Every witness testified that Defendant did nothing wrong and that Plaintiff should not have been in the street. The jury deliberated for 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to returning with a Defense Verdict.
