Attorney Michael Kelly represented the Plaintiff, who suffered a mild traumatic brain injury, and orthopedic injuries including pelvic trauma and toe fractures. The friend who caused the accident claimed the Plaintiff continued to play bridge without any problems. An expert for the defense testified the Plaintiff scored extremely high on a neuropsychological examination. An expert for the Plaintiff, who performed a SPECT scan of the Plaintiff’s brain, testified that she had definite signs of injury, particularly in the temporal and frontal lobes. The Plaintiff testified on the witness stand that the injury “caused her to be forgetful.”
The client rejected a $150,000 offer to settle the case before trial.
“We’re excited that today our client received justice for her pain and suffering,” said Kelly. “She feels vindicated by the jury’s verdict.”
