Salzillo Beats Pre-Trial Offer In Gwinnett County
In a two day trial in Gwinnett County, Alex Salzillo successfully defended a case in which his client had admitted to negligently running a red light and causing a t-bone accident that totaled both vehicles.
The plaintiff went to the emergency room the night of the accident, where x-rays and CT scans were taken. Thereafter, the plaintiff underwent four months of chiropractic treatment, two MRIs, and consulted with a pain management doctor.
The plaintiff presented $18,000 in special damages, and his attorney asked for no less than $35,000 in closing, the amount demanded prior to trial. In less than forty-five minutes, the jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff in the amount of his emergency room bills, $6,387. The defendant had offered $10,000 prior to trial.
