Brandt Obtains Defense Verdict in Admitted Fault Case

Posted on Mar 22, 2016 in Results

Despite the defendant’s admission of fault, on February 22, 2016, Attorney Andrew Brandt obtained a defense verdict in front of a Fulton County jury.  Mr. Brandt’s client admitted that she caused the rear-end accident that caused extensive vehicle damage.  After leaving the scene of the accident in her own vehicle, plaintiff complained of soft tissue injury and began treating with a chiropractor the following day.  Despite a dozen trips to the chiropractor, and undergoing cervical and lumbar MRIs, the jury did not believe that plaintiff was injured as a result of the accident.  Eight months prior to trial, the defendant had extended statutory settlement offers in the amount of $3,500.   Plaintiff’s attorney, in closing arguments, asked the jury to award plaintiff $25,000.
