Practice Highlights

Representative Verdicts & Settlements
Firm Gets $1.2 Million for Estate of Elderly Motorist who Collides with Motor Home: Our firm's legal team was able to persuade the U.S. District Court Judge to exclude from the trial defense evidence that Mr. Heekin was legally blind in one eye and was on his way to see his opthamologist when the accident occurred. We successfully argued that since Mr. Heekin's vision met minimum standards for Vermont drivers, and that introduction of the evidence of his eye surgery more prejudicial than probative. Our cross examination of the defendant truck driver and defendant escort vehicle driver left no doubt that the collision was caused by their negligence, including parking the escort car facing the wrong way in Mr. Heekin's lane of traffic with the high beams on.
