Posted on Apr 08, 2024 in Results

Following a 4 day trial in Fulton County, Kyle Joyce and Matthew Hurst secured a defense verdict for their client. The case involved a disputed fault accident in which their client was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device. Further complicating matters was the fact their client appeared in court and pleaded guilty to the same. Both Plaintiffs fixed blame for the accident on the Defendant, as did Plaintiff’s accident reconstructionist and the investigating officer. Both Plaintiffs claimed serious shoulder injuries and were recommended to undergo surgery. At the close of trial, Plaintiffs’ counsel asked the jury to award more than a million dollars. Prior to filing suit, Plaintiffs rejected offers totaling more than $150,000.00. After deliberating for less than an hour, the jury returned with a defense verdict.
