Campbell Conroy & O’Neil obtains defense verdict in property damage case

October 2019

Ashley L. McCormack recently tried a property damage case to a defense verdict. The plaintiff alleged a single claim of negligence against our client, an automotive parts supplier, arising from an alleged car accident between the plaintiff and a company driver, in which the plaintiff’s vehicle sustained damage. On cross-examination, the plaintiff admitted that the vehicle he was operating was not his, and in fact is owned and registered to another individual. Upon soliciting this testimony, judgement immediately entered in our client’s favor on the basis that the plaintiff had no standing to litigate this claim.
