After 20 Minutes of Deliberation, Jury Finds for Defendant

Posted on Dec 23, 2021 in Results

Following a 2 day trial, attorney Ben Harbin obtained a defense verdict in Henry County. The case involved an admitted fault rear end accident.  The plaintiff presented medical bills totaling $15,000 and argued the accident caused a meniscus tear.  Plaintiff admitted having a prior history of knee pain but related the meniscus tear directly to the accident. A post accident MRI showed a meniscus tear.  Defense argued that the meniscus tear was a degenerative tear rather than an acute tear. After 20 minutes of deliberation the Jury asked if they could award the defendant attorney’s fees and defense costs.
