While my practice is now almost exclusively representing those injured in accidents, I have a few defense cases. One such case went to trial in April and is considered a “win,” even though the jury awarded the Plaintiff a money judgment.
My client had offered the person “claiming” to be injured $7,500 to settle her case before trial, and she refused to accept that amount and demanded $25,000.00.
After a two-day trial and various motions filed after the trial, the Plaintiff was only awarded $3,300.00 for her net verdict amount. As the jury verdict amount was less then the pre-trial offer to settle, this case is considered “a win”.
