Reminger Wins a Defense Verdict for Insured and CNA in an OH Fall Case
Guys…good news from Ohio…
I am pleased to report CNA, its insured and Defense counsel got a Defense Verdict in an Aging Services wrongful death action pending in Lucas County (Toledo) Ohio. Lucas county is one of the most liberal in OH. Case involved a resident’s backward fall from a wheelchair. Resident died about a week following the fall from head trauma.
Jury was out about 5 hours. There was a former executive assistant to a LTC administrator on the panel, along with the spouse of a retired Common Pleas Judge from that county. The jury chose not to speak w/anyone afterward, so I have no details to offer. Jury had two questions, about topics on which there had been no evidence and was instructed to decide case based on evidence presented in trial.
This case reinforces you can get a good result in an aging services matter in a liberal venue like Lucas county
Call me or send a note if you need any more information.
