Jun 28, 2022 - About the Firm by

Sandra T. Carson, of the firm’s Maryland office, recently secured a defense verdict for a regional waste removal company after a one-day bench trial in a case arising out of a collision between a trash truck and a passenger vehicle. Liability for the collision was conceded and the parties had resolved Plaintiff’s property damage claims pre-suit; however, Plaintiff filed suit to recover for emotional distress, inconvenience, and economic losses allegedly resulting from the event. 

Following testimony and argument, the Court agreed that certain of the claimed damages were not legally recoverable and the others were not foreseeable as a result of the accident and as a result, entered judgment in favor of our client.
