Tiffany Steward Obtains Defense Verdict in Admitted Liability Case in Los Angeles County
On September 11, 2019, Tiffany Steward successfully concluded a personal injury jury trial in Pomona, CA. The plaintiff claimed to have sustained significant injuries as the result of a rear-end motor vehicle accident that occurred on June 14, 2016 in Los Angeles County. The defense admitted liability for the rear-end accident but disputed causation of injuries. The plaintiff had incurred in excess of $100,000 in lien based treatment but at the start of trial the plaintiff waived special damages in an attempt to win favor from the jury. After a one week trial, the jury returned a unanimous verdict finding that the defendant’s negligence was not a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s claimed injuries and treatment.
