In an auto vs. truck suit with a challenging fact pattern, Pittsburgh counsel, D. J. Geis, Esquire, admitted liability on behalf of his defendant truck operator who rear-ended plaintiff’s vehicle. Our expert conceded the plaintiff had a minor soft tissue injury and counsel for the plaintiff continually refused to accept a realistic offer. Plaintiff’s expert attended the trial and testified the plaintiff’s continuing pain was related to the accident.
The jury returned an award of $0.00 and was instructed by the judge to reconsider; a verdict of $2,500.00 was awarded. Congratulations to DJ for raising the bar!
