Congratulations to Steve Brady and his team at The Brady Law Group on a unanimous jury verdict for this client in a recent San Francisco trial. The Defendants offered $375,000 to settle before the trial and Mr. Brady countered with $999,000. After a 10-day trial, the jury returned with a unanimous verdict for $1.1 Million.
The Plaintiff was a 42-year old union construction laborer working on a road-repaving project. He had his back to traffic in a “coned off” lane of the road when he was struck by the side mirror of the defendant’s van. He was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff and adhesive capsulitis. His injuries ended his career.
The defense argued vigorously that his injuries were a result of the Plaintiff’s 10-year history of working with jackhammers and heavy construction equipment. The defense had an extremely skilled attorney and 2 doctors spearheading their claim that the accident was not the cause of Plaintiff’s injuries.
After a ten-day trial, deliberations lasted for three days before a unanimous verdict was entered for the Plaintiff. The Plaintiff was awarded $31,000 in medical bills, $185,000 in past lost wages, $389,000 in future lost wages, and $488,000 in general damages. Nine jurors found the Plaintiff to be 1% at fault.
