RSRM Associate James Buck tried a one-day jury trial in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. Plaintiff filed suit alleging negligence against the Defendant and claimed the Defendant’s alleged negligence was the proximate cause of the motor-vehicle accident.
James was able to highlight evidence showing that the Plaintiff had, in fact, not only been involved in upwards of ten (10) previous automobile accident in the past fifteen (15) years, but that in each case, the Plaintiff had made a claim for injuries, mostly to the neck and back. Despite these many prior accidents and injuries, the Plaintiff’s discovery responses disclosed only 2 other accidents, one prior and one subsequent.
After less than four (4) minutes of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant.
