Nixon Successfully Defends Client in Circuit Court Jury Trial

Faith Nixon of Carr Allison’s Mobile (AL) office successfully defended her client in a circuit court jury trial in Mobile County, Alabama. The Plaintiff claimed that he fell from a chair in the Defendant’s home.  He further claimed the chair was broken, and the Defendant was aware the chair was broken at the time he used it; therefore, she should be liable for his injuries.  As a result of the fall, he claimed he suffered injuries to his lumbar and cervical spine along with a concussion which resulted in temporary memory problems.  Plaintiff asked the jury to award $193,000 for past and future medical expenses and past and future pain and suffering.  Ms. Nixon defended her client showing that the chair was not broken and her client had no knowledge of any alleged defects to the chair that could have caused the fall.  After deliberating for 25 minutes, the jury returned a defense verdict.
