Polk County Defense Verdict
On October 2, 2013, in the case of Dorothy Welsch v. Kimberly Reisner, a Polk County jury returned a verdict favoring the defendant. The case involved a rear-end collision that was admittedly the fault of the Defendant. The Plaintiff sought over $30,000 in damages for an alleged permanent neck injury. The Defendant, who was represented by Patterson Law Firm attorney Jason W. Miller, argued the accident caused a temporary aggravation of the neck injury, and that the Plaintiff’s alleged continuing problems were caused by other factors. The Defendant suggested the jury award $4,500 in damages. The jury, after considering the evidence, returned a unanimous verdict for $,4500.
