London Fischer LLP congratulates Nicholas Davila and Jon Sher for obtaining a defense verdict in a three week long brain injury trial in Southern California. Plaintiff claimed that he was injured when he fell over a telecommunications cable. As a result of the accident, in addition to undergoing shoulder surgery, he claimed to have sustained a brain injury with residual cognitive deficits rendering him unable to return to work for the remainder of his life. Plaintiff was knocked unconscious and hospitalized following the accident. Plaintiff alleged permanent injuries and cognitive deficits, and was seeking $9 million dollars at the time of trial.
Following a three week trial, the jury deliberated for half a day before returning a defense verdict, finding no causation between the accident and the injuries alleged.
