Orlando Partner, Mike Merrill, and Orlando Associate, Yolanda Martinez recently obtained a favorable trial result in Brevard County. The case involved an admitted liability accident between Plaintiff’s stopped vehicle and the Defendants’ tractor-trailer. Plaintiff eventually underwent surgeries for her neck and low back. She boarded $325,000 in medical bills and it was asserted she would require future surgeries to her neck and low back. The Plaintiff asked for $1,900,000 during closing arguments and the jury awarded $160,000. The verdict was approximately the amount the Defendants had offered prior to trial.
