McWilliams & Gladney v. Roins Produce, 13 L 300172
Verdict: Not Guilty
Trial Date: October 9, 2014
We successfully defended a produce company and their driver on a “swoop and squat” case. An unidentified vehicle stopped suddenly in front of the plaintiff’s car causing the plaintiff to collide with the unidentified vehicle. Our client, driving behind the plaintiff’s vehicle, was able to stop without hitting the plaintiff’s rear. After the collision, the unidentified vehicle in front sped away, and the plaintiff sued our insured for damages. With photographs of the plaintiff’s vehicle showing almost no damage to the back of his vehicle, we were able to get a defense verdict after the jury deliberated just twenty minutes.
