Defense Verdict in Trucking Case
On November 12, 2009, Fred Valz obtained a defense verdict in a trucking case in Spalding County State Court. The lawsuit arose from a motor vehicle accident that occurred on a dark and foggy morning on a rural highway in Georgia. The Plaintiff rear-ended the Defendant’s garbage truck, which was stopped partially in the highway. The Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant’s truck was operating without any rear lights on at the time of the accident and produced two witnesses that saw the Defendant’s truck without rear lights on shortly before the accident. The Plaintiff claimed she suffered a severe and permanent traumatic brain injury and could never return to gainful employment. The defense presented expert testimony that the Plaintiff did not have any cognitive deficits and could return to her previous job. After two and half hours, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the Defendants.
