Advocate Capital, Inc. would like to congratulate our friend and client, Blake Johnson of Johnson Livingston PLLC who recently won a $300,000 verdict on behalf of his client. The Defendant appealed the verdict but was unsuccessful, which resulted in favorable law for all plaintiffs in Utah.
The Plaintiff’s vehicle was struck by the Defendant’s vehicle after the Defendant failed to stop at a stop sign. The Plaintiff suffered a herniated disc as a result of the accident. Her Chiropractor testified at the trial that she would never fully recover from the herniated disc. The Plaintiff’s daughter and friend both testified that the injury has negatively affected the Plaintiff’s life and the Plaintiff is no longer able to perform many tasks that she was once able to perform.
The Plaintiff was not seeking economic damages (less than $15,000) but was seeking compensation for the pain and suffering she would continue to experience for the remainder of her life.
A verdict of $300,00 was awarded to the Plaintiff for general damages. Congratulations to Blake Johnson and the team at Johnson Livingston PLLC. We are proud to support Plaintiff attorneys like them who fight for justice on behalf of their clients.
