Favorable Jury Verdict
Mallory M. Street and Grafton E. Bragg obtained a favorable jury verdict in the County Court of Bolivar County. The Plaintiff claimed he suffered significant injury to his neck and back, and asked for damages of more than $300,000 for past and future medical expenses, past lost wages, and pain and suffering. Wise Carter argued that Plaintiff was not seriously injured and that much of his medical treatment was caused, not by the Defendant, but from a second motor vehicle accident just three months later. The jury awarded Plaintiff nominal lost wages, less than his claimed medical expenses, and $0 for pain and suffering.
