Success for Brogdon and Stahl in DeKalb County

Posted on May 23, 2023 in Results

At the end of a two-day trial, WACHP Associate Attorneys John Brogdon and Benjamin Stahl secured a favorable verdict for their client in DeKalb County State Court.  The client admitted fault for a minor collision with minor damage to both vehicles.  Plaintiff alleged that he sustained a knee injury which required surgery.  However, MRI images indicated that the knee injury pre-existed the accident and was degenerative in nature.  Additionally, Plaintiff did not present to any medical provider for six-days after the accident until he called a personal injury lawyer and was referred to a chiropractor.  The jury determined that some injury pre-existed the accident but declined to award plaintiff the full value of his medical bills.  Although plaintiff’s counsel asked for one-dollar short of $100,000, the jury awarded plaintiff $18,500 (less than half of plaintiff’s medical specials and lost wages).
