DEFENSE PREVAILS IN JURY TRIAL ON UNDERINSURED MOTORIST CLAIM
We prevailed in a jury trial on a UM claim in Hillsborough County’s 13th Judicial Circuit. The plaintiff claimed he suffered permanent and debilitating injuries in a rear-end collision in Tampa, Florida. Liability was admitted, but the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries was in dispute. The plaintiff asked the jury to award him $500,000 for past and future damages. The jury found there was no permanent injury and awarded $25,000 for past medical expenses only.
