Attorney Sarah Dempsey recently received a favorable verdict in an auto accident defense trial.  Ms. Dempsey’s client admitted liable for causing the accident.  The only remaining issue for trial was the amount of the plaintiff’s damages.  The plaintiff claimed she was injured in the accident and required medical treatment.  She wanted to hold Ms. Dempsey’s client liability for a spine surgery that occurred over three years after the accident in question.  The plaintiff asked the jury for over $220,000 in damages for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  Ms. Dempsey asked the jury to return a verdict of $5,800 to $8,800.  The jury came back with a verdict of $8,800.
