Favorable Verdict Received For Family Who Was Struck By A Dump Truck On The Beltway

By Peter DePaolis

The trial team from Koonz, McKenney, Johnson & DePaolis won a verdict in Prince George’s Court for three people injured in a motor vehicle collision.

The defendants offered $500, $40,000 and $43,000 for the individual plaintiffs. Jurors heard a stellar opening by Washington, D.C. injury lawyer Kelly Fisher, a compelling direct exam of the plaintiffs by Washington, D.C. injury attorney Paulette Chapman, as well as Paulette’s withering cross of the doctor hired by the defendant.

Powerful persuasion convinced the jury to return a verdict of $2,800, $150,000 and $133,000 for the plaintiffs. This is the third jury trial that was won by the team of Chapman and Fisher in 2009. Their earlier verdicts were for $1,000,000, and $684,577. They have obtained the largest jury verdict this year in DC Superior Court for a motor vehicle crash.
