Defense Verdict Obtained in Trucking Accident Trial

Christopher Grace obtained a defense verdict in a trucking accident case which went to trial in East Baton Rouge Parish. The plaintiff and her passengers alleged that they were  traveling for two minutes or more in the same lane of travel as defendants’ driver when defendants’ truck rear-ended plaintiff’s vehicle. The defendant testified that plaintiff swerved into his lane directly in his path. Using photographic evidence, Mr. Grace was able to demonstrate that the plaintiff and her passengers’ testimony was fabricated. Defendants were found to be free from liability, as the sole cause of the accident was plaintiff’s negligence.
