February 2013-Chris Waller obtains a defendant’s verdict in jury trial in Montgomery County

Chris Waller, a partner in the firm’s Montgomery office, recently obtained a defendant’s verdict for his client in a two day jury trial in Montgomery County. During the two day trial which began on February 25, 2013, Chris successfully defended his client against claims of serious bodily injuries arising from a motor vehicle accident.

In a complicated set of facts and legal theories involving allegations of negligence per se, Chris convinced the Montgomery County jury that his client was not guilty of negligence, and further convinced the jury that the Plaintiff was contributory negligent in the accident, and therefore, was barred from recovery.  The Court entered a final judgment in favor of Chris’ client, after the jury’s determination. The Plaintiff has not elected to appeal at this time.
