Securing jury defense verdict for leading transportation rental company.
Lightfoot obtained a defense verdict for our client, a leading transportation rental company, in a jury trial held in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana. The plaintiff claimed debilitating back injuries and over $1 million in damages after he was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler while using a tow dolly rented to him by our client. He claimed that the tow dolly lights were defective and that our client did not provide him with adequate warnings about the need for additional lighting on the vehicle being towed. After hearing the case, the jury returned a verdict in favor of our clients after deliberating for less than 30 minutes.
