Defendants Verdict in Trucking Related Personal Injury Claim

Casey Hinton vs. TransAm Trucking, Inc.

Partner who tried case: J. Phillip Bryant

We represented: TransAm Trucking, Inc.

Venue: Circuit Court of Madison County, Illinois

Facts:  TransAm driver rear ended another tractor-trailer on I-55 that was stopped due to traffic congestion stemming from road construction.  Plaintiff alleged that the second tractor-trailer was pushed into a pick up truck that was, in turn, pushed into the rear of plaintiff’s vehicle.  There was no direct testimony to support the plaintiff’s alleged version of events.  We contended that the plaintiff failed to meet her burden to prove that the impact she experienced was caused by the TransAm driver.  We also disputed the extent of the plaintiff’s medical care that largely consisted of chiropractic treatment and physical therapy.

Last Demand: $13,800

Last Offer: $5,750

Verdict:  Defendant’s Verdict
