CFHO Obtains No Negligence Verdict in Motor Vehicle Accident Trial
Scherry Jeffcoat v. James Arnold; In the 198th Judicial District Court, Kerr County, Texas
This case was transferred to our office 1 month prior to the initial trial date and included a blown Stowers demand issue. Plaintiff claimed injuries to her neck, chest, left shoulder, and body in general; however, also suffered similar injuries in a prior 1997 motor vehicle accident. Plaintiff received a surgical recommendation of an anterior cervical fusion at C5-C6 and another surgical recommendation of a three-level fusion at her cervical spine with surgical expenses ranging between $100,000.00 and $130,000.00. Based upon the jury’s finding of “no negligence” the jury was not asked to deliberate concerning Plaintiff’s damages. Plaintiff sought over $295,000 at time of trial. No negligence as to Defendant. Congratulations to Edward Osuna.
