Morrison Mahoney Partner Doug Price and Associate Corey Mastin obtained a defense verdict following a three-day trial in Springfield District Court. The case involved a motor vehicle accident, which, after dismissals of various claims, was tried with the counterclaim plaintiff/driver suing our client/driver of the other vehicle, claiming she suffered personal injuries to her neck and back.
At trial we were able to impeach plaintiff’s version of the accident with various evidence, including the testimony of her boyfriend who purportedly witnessed the accident as a pedestrian. We were also able to impeach plaintiff’s claim that she was asymptomatic prior to the accident through the use of various medical records. After an approximately 10 minute deliberation, the jury found that our client was not negligent.
