Kudos to Adam Peoples, Hall Booth & Smith, and Sara Lincoln, Lincoln Derr PLLC, in securing a defense verdict in a very difficult medical malpractice case in Catawba County, NC. The trial was bifurcated on liability and damages, but Plaintiffs forecasted presenting a life care plan of future medical expenses exceeding $2.6M. It took the jury less than an hour to return its unanimous verdict: the defendant doctor was not negligent.

Congratulations to John Spainhour, McAngus Goudelock & Courie LLC, for securing a complete defense verdict for a general contractor client in Haywood County, NC. After eight days of evidence and arguments, the jury only needed 38 minutes to decide in favor of John’s client.

Congratulations again to the team at Lincoln Derr, Sara Lincoln and Scott Addison, with the assistance of paralegal Erin Alfaro, obtained a defense verdict for a physician after a week-long trial in York County, South Carolina. The trial included an affirmative defense of comparative negligence and was bifurcated on negligence and punitive damages. The jury never got to the questions of comparative negligence or punitive damages. It took the jury less than two hours to find the client not negligent.
