Seeking $1.4M in Damages for Alleged Injuries, Plaintiff Feels Pain of Defense Verdict

February 21, 2018

Johnson & Bell Shareholders, Charles P. Rantis and Timothy R. Couture, secured a defense verdict for their client, a public transportation agency, in a personal injury lawsuit.  At trial, the plaintiff sought $1.4 million in damages for alleged injuries suffered while a passenger on a vehicle owned by Johnson & Bell’s client.  Plaintiff claimed that he would never work again due to his injuries, which he said would require knee replacement surgery on both of his legs, in addition to other alleged injuries. Plaintiff also presented an elaborate accident reconstruction as part of his case. The defense countered that plaintiff suffered no injuries. The jury found that the plaintiff suffered no injury and awarded a verdict for the defense.  Here is a PDF of the Jury Verdict Reporter on this case.
