Defense Verdict in Estill County Trial

At the close of a three-day trial, an Estill County jury asked to award millions of dollars rendered a verdict imposing no liability on our client in a case involving a three-vehicle accident in which both plaintiffs were seriously injured. While the jury did award substantial damages, they were only a fraction of what the plaintiffs sought. The jury apportioned liability 90% to another defendant for crossing the center line, 10% to each plaintiff for failure to wear their shoulder harnesses, and 0% to our client. The case was tried by John Irvin and Barry Stilz.
