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.
