Defense Verdict in Augusta, Georgia

June 8, 2011 in News

Spencer LLP secured a defense verdict in a major case in U.S. District Court in Augusta.  The case involved allegations that a popular passenger car had a handling defect.  The plaintiff had been rendered a quadriplegic when the driver jerked the steering wheel to avoid another car, then ran into and over a guardrail.  The plaintiff’s demand was in 8 figures prior to trial, and began to drop only while the jury was out.  The 12 person jury returned a unanimous verdict for our client.  Chris Spencer was lead counsel, supported by associate Ellen Bergren and able local counsel Chuck Reed, Suneel Gupta, Jill Kuhn and Nan Morgan from Atlanta’s McKenna, Long and Aldridge.
