Pettit Kohn Achieves Another Defense Verdict for Large Retail Client

On April 22, 2010, a Chatsworth jury returned a verdict in favor of the firm’s client after nearly two weeks of testimony and argument. The case involved allegations of personal injuries stemming from an accident on the client’s premises. The injuries involved two prior orthopedic surgeries and the allegations of one that was necessary in the future. The plaintiff claimed medical damages in excess of $250,000. After hearing all the evidence, the jury returned a verdict finding that the store was not negligent. Grant Waterkotte and Mark Bloom represented the client on the firm’s behalf.
