Jury Decides in Favor of Plaintiff in Trial of Motor Vehicle Accident  

shutterstock_519384853
In the recent trial of the case of Terrance Thompson v. Ummakhayr Mabry, the jury decided in favor of the plaintiff, who was involved in a motor vehicle accident over three years ago in April 2013. At the time of the accident, Mr. Mabry was driving a vehicle when he failed to halt at a stop sign at the intersection of Union Street and Sutter Avenue in East New York. He said he did not see the other car prior to the accident, and depicted the time of impact as the sensation of his car being flown through the air.
The case went to trial on the issue of damages only. Previously, the court granted a motion for summary judgment on behalf of the plaintiff concerning the issue of liability.
Mr. Thompson, age 38, and an underemployed handyman, was a passenger in the vehicle that had the right of way at the intersection. He suffered a severe injury, which required him to have arthroscopic surgery for partial tears in his right shoulder.
Although defense counsel contended that Mr. Thompson’s injuries were not severe, and were pre-existing and degenerative, the jury thought differently and awarded Mr. Thompson the sum of $65,000 in damages.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident due to the fault of another individual, call the personal injury attorneys at Proner and Proner.
