The Jury Returns a Verdict in a Frivolous Lawsuit
The Jury Returns a Verdict in a Frivolous Lawsuit- VA Personal Injury Attorney Paul Hernandez. Listen as Paul Hernandez details a case in which a jury returned a verdict for a frivolous lawsuit, and as he defines what a frivolous lawsuit really is. A previous client was driving down the interstate when she slowed down and came to a stop due to traffic in front of her. She was then hit from behind by not only the car behind her, but also by two others behind that car. She was struck a total of three times. In the end, she suffered chronic and continued low back pain, and her doctor required her to get a spinal cord stimulator implanted in her lower back to ease the pain. In this example, all three insurance companies of the other drivers that hit her denied the claim. We eventually went to a jury trial, presented the evidence to the jury and recovered a significant sum of money for the client. This leads us to the definition of frivolous. This case was frivolous because all three defendants claimed they were not at fault, even though they knew they were. Watch the video to learn more.
