Carr Allison’s Jacksonville Attorneys Earn Defense Verdict

Carr Allison attorneys Johnny Sarber, Heath Vickers and Marissa de los Reyes (Jacksonville, FL) obtained a complete defense verdict following a four-day jury trial in the trucking case of Allen v. Nationalight, Nyambuti, and Sublett in Duval County (Jacksonville) Florida.  Plaintiff claimed Defendant driver Sublett turned left in front of him and violated his right of way in the dark, causing him significant injuries resulting in six hip surgeries, the inability to work again and close to $1.5 million in boardable (actual cost incurred) past and future medical expenses and lost wages.  Plaintiff’s counsel, a prominent personal injury firm in Jacksonville with a long track record of multi-million dollar verdicts, asked for $5 million in total damages during closing argument.  After only an hour and fifteen minutes of deliberations, the jury determined that the Defendant driver was not negligent and awarded the Plaintiff nothing.  Plaintiff doggedly pursued negligent hiring and supervision claims during the litigation and retained some of the most outspoken industry critics as experts.  However, the Carr Allison defense team successfully blocked those claims from being presented at trial, despite the fact that the motor carrier and tractor owner were out of business and did not participate in the case or appear at trial.
