Arizona Managing Partner John Belanger and Associate Ryan Leibel Obtain a Unanimous Defense Verdict!

Congratulations to Partner John J. Belanger and Associate Ryan S. Leibel on their 9-0 defense verdict following a 3-day jury trial in Maricopa County Superior Court.

The suit involved an October 18, 2018 motor vehicle accident. Both the driver and passenger in the vehicle struck by BWB&O’s client alleged significant physical and emotional damages as a result of the accident, including invasive procedures to treat back injuries. The defense strategy focused on lack of causation and credibility. On cross-examination, following theatrical testimony by both Plaintiffs,  John and Ryan utilized Plaintiffs’ significant pre-accident medical histories and gaps in post-accident medical treatment to destroy their credibility with the jury. During closing arguments, Plaintiffs sought a jury award of over $250,000.00. Following a short deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of BWB&O’s client.
