Dan Prout obtained a defense verdict in a clear liability case in the State Court of DeKalb County. The case involved a collision between an automobile driven by a drunk driver who fled the scene and a vehicle in which the plaintiff was riding as a passenger. The defense involved proving that the plaintiff was not injured despite a moderate impact in the collision. Despite the plaintiff-oriented venue and the enormous potential for an award of punitive damages, Mr. Prout was able to convince the jury that the plaintiff was not injured in the accident
