McNeill and Matthews Secure Defense Verdict

Posted on Sep 13, 2018 in Results

On September 4 and September 5, 2018, Rakhi McNeill and Anthony Matthews obtained a defense verdict in Cobb County on behalf of their client who admitted fault in a motor vehicle accident.  Plaintiff did not complain of injury at the scene but went to the emergency room on the day of the accident.  The next day she began chiropractic care and sought treatment with a medical doctor, who administered a cervical epidural steroid injection.  Plaintiff claimed that her pain had not improved at all and also claimed continued pain and suffering from the accident which occurred 5 years ago.  The verdict, which came after less than an hour of deliberation, was influenced by the impeachment of plaintiff on cross-examination and the inconsistencies of her testimony when compared to the other evidence in the case.
