Blouin Dunn represented the driver of a vehicle which collided with another vehicle in an intersection. Our client’s car careened off and seriously injured a pedestrian. The two drivers settled with the pedestrian, however, they could not agree on apportionment of fault. Our client offered to take 40% of the liability, however, the other driver insisted that we take 50%. The matter went to a jury trial.
The jury sided with our client and found that we were only 15% to blame and placed the rest of the responsibility squarely on the shoulders of the opposition. Our client was awarded costs of ,000.00 plus expert’s fees.
