Litigation News February 2017Author: Portner & Shure
On January 20, 2016, our client was involved in an accident that occurred in the snow on the Capital Beltway in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Liability was denied in this case because the defendant alleged that our client slid on the snowy road and slid into him. However, Portner & Shure attorney, Christina Ruhl, successfully argued that the property damage to our client’s vehicle did not support the defendant’s version of the accident. Our client’s version of the accident was that the defendant attempted to pass him and in the process, he clipped the side of his vehicle, causing the collision. The Court awarded our client $15,000.00, based on more than $7,000.00 in property damage and more than $7,000.00 in medical expenses. Our client was extremely happy with the result in his case.
