Nixon and Wiley Earn Another Defense Verdict

Faith Nixon and Aaron Wiley of Carr Allison’s Mobile (AL) office successfully defended their client in a circuit court jury trial in Baldwin County, Alabama.  The case concerned a rear-end collision in which the Defendant, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, rear-ended three different vehicles while trying to drive home from a doctor’s appointment.  The Plaintiff, a passenger in one of the vehicles, claimed that he suffered a rotator cuff tear (torn labrum and torn bicep) which required a surgical repair.  The Plaintiff asked the jury for $127,000 in damages which included medical expenses, three months of lost wages, pain and suffering and mental anguish.  At trial, Nixon argued that the Plaintiff’s alleged injuries were not caused by the Defendant’s actions and supported her argument with the testimony of a biomechanical expert.  After deliberating for only 19 minutes, the jury returned with a defense verdict.  This is the third case in which Nixon has obtained a defense verdict for a client that rear-ended another vehicle.
