Congratulations to Attorneys Joe Center and Joe Pappalardo on securing a defense verdict on behalf of their trucking client. The plaintiff, whose background could have made him highly sympathetic to the jury (and who also holds a CDL), claimed that our truck driver client caused a collision with his passenger vehicle on the Ohio Turnpike and then fled the scene. Plaintiff pursued our client, after which he claimed further that our client assaulted and battered him. Plaintiff sought medical and psychological treatment. Following a six-day trial and only forty-five minutes of deliberation, the jury rejected both claims and delivered a unanimous verdict for the defense.
