Roman & Gaynor is pleased to announce that our legal team was recently
successful in securing a $335,000 jury verdict on behalf of a client who
was injured in a pedestrian accident. The verdict was reached on January
26th in Pinellas County Circuit Court.
The case stemmed from an incident that took place in a parking lot, where
our client had been standing by her vehicle when she was struck by an
elderly driver. After initially striking our client, the driver then pinned
her against her own vehicle. Although there was no property damage to
the vehicles due to the low-speed parking lot crash, our client suffered
injuries that later required spinal surgery for her lower back.
After helping our client secure the necessary medical treatment, the other
driver’s insurance company aggressively defended against the claim.
According to the insurer, it was argued that the injury was pre-existing,
and that the spinal degeneration was not caused by the parking lot collision.
The insurance company also argued that the incident was merely a “bump,”
and that our client was comparatively at fault, meaning that they argued
she contributed to the accident.
After the insurance company refused to compensate our client for what she
was rightfully owed, our legal team took the case to trial. After four
days of litigation in Pinellas County Court, the six-member jury sided
with our evidence and presentation of the facts, and awarded our client
a $335,000 verdict, which will help provide the compensation needed to
pay for her medical treatment, emotional injuries, and recovery, among
Results like these are attainable when victims work with experienced personal
injury lawyers who are capable leveling the playing field with insurers
who put profits over people, aggressively defend against claims and payouts,
and refuse to pay victims what they deserve. It also speaks volumes about
the benefits of working with proven trial lawyers who are not afraid to
take a case to trial – and win.
