Please join us in congratulating Partner Jeffrey Saab and Associate Melissa Ingleby on another terrific trial result in Las Vegas. After a three week trial with the jury deliberating for almost a full day, Jeffrey and Melissa obtained a most impressive defense verdict. In a case where we admitted liability, where our client was cited for both hit and run and reckless driving (plead down from DUI), the jury rejected the request of $15M that was made by one of the premiere plaintiff attorneys in Nevada and his co-counsel. The carrier offered over $2M before the case went to the jury. The jury awarded the main Plaintiff $1.1M and the driver 175K, both of which claimed that they would require rhizotomies for the next 50 years. We were also able to beat both of Plaintiffs’ offers of judgment to our client. The carrier is very pleased with the result!
Also, a special thanks to Partner Scott Ulm who jumped in during trial to assist on the cross examination of witnesses and Crystal Williams who performed tireless paralegal work throughout.
Well done and congratulations to the Las Vegas team on another impressive defense win!
