Little et al v Caudill, civil action #10-ci-1236, Floyd Circuit Court.
O'Bryan v. Nielsen, 12-ci-2963, Jefferson Circuit Court.
Curtis v Grigsby, 12-ci-00030, Perry Circuit Court
This auto negligence trial was conducted in the liberal venue of Perry Circuit Court in 2013. The accident was clear liability on the insured defendant. The insured defendant pulled out from the stop sign in front of the plaintiff. The accident was significant and totaled both vehicles. Witnesses testified live as to the nature of the impact. Defendant conceded liability and I did not call my client to the stand. The plaintiff put on live medical proof. The defense disputed medical causation with Dr. Henry Tutt. Plaintiffs medical bills were in the $50,000 range. The jury awarded the ER bill only of about $3,000 and nothing else resulting in a defense verdict with PIP.
The case was appealed to the Kentucky Court of Appeals under case no. 2013-CA-000676. The Court of Appeals affirmed the jury verdict.
