Fisher v. Manzanares
Result: Trial Victory (Defense Verdict) Facts: Our clients in this case were a “big rig” truck driver and company who were accused of motor vehicle negligence by the plaintiff. The plaintiff alleged that while she was driving her vehicle on the 405 freeway, our clients’ truck changed lanes suddenly, hit her car and caused it to spin out of control. She sought money damages for various bodily injuries as well as to replace her car.
The plaintiff pursued a bench trial, knowing that it was in her benefit to not have a jury hear her case. We won our motion for jury trial, and a jury was impaneled. At the trial, we argued that the plaintiff failed to meet her burden of proof. The jury agreed and absolved our clients of any responsibility for the plaintiff’s accident.
