On July 20, 2016, after a lengthy two-day Jury trial in the Court of Common Pleas for Charleston County, South Carolina, a personal injury trial was won by McGrath Law Firm when they received a plaintiff’s verdict.
Twelve jurors agreed, unanimously, that the defendant was liable. The jury awarded money damages for personal injury and for property damage to the Plaintiff.
The issues were hotly contested. It became necessary to use the plaintiff’s doctor as a key witness. McGrath Law Firm Attorney Peter McGrath and Attorney John Farrell diligently handled the trial.
Personal Injury Trials are difficult to win
In particular, Charleston County, South Carolina is notoriously difficult for plaintiffs to win trials for with respect to personal injury cases.
The jury in that specific area is generally made up of conservative people that are not very sympathetic to a plaintiff. This typically makes a Plaintiff verdict a rare victory in this location. Attorneys McGrath and Farrell strategically worked to persuade the jury that a plaintiff’s verdict was warranted.
Attorney McGrath of McGrath Law Firm stated that, “we are so pleased to get a victory in this Jury trial for our client..Our Client was injured from a sideswipe car accident and had to wait two years to go to trial”.
Attorney McGrath is a well-respected former federal prosecutor. Presently he has offices in the desirable locations of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina and Concord, New Hampshire and regularly handles personal injury matters in both locations.
