Defense Verdict on Damages in Admitted Negligence Case

January 2012- George O.Y. Naylor, Esq.-Henrico County Circuit Court- This case involved a rear-end automobile accident in the parking lot at Deep Run High School in Henrico County which resulted in minimal property damage.  Plaintiff filed suit and alleged injuries to her neck and lower back to include herniated discs in the lumbar spine and claimed approximately $6,500 in medical bills for treatment spanning over two years.  Plaintiff further claimed constant ongoing pain and symptoms as a result of the accident.  While admitting the Defendant’s negligence, Mr. Naylor contested the likelihood that Plaintiff could have been injured in this low speed-low impact accident and relied on the testimony of the Defendant and the photographs of the vehicles showing no damage in support of the same.  The jury deliberated for just thirty minutes before returning a verdict in favor of the Defendant.
