Verdict in Fulton State Court for Less than Pre-Trial Offer

In December 2010, a jury in the State Court of Fulton County returned a verdict for less than the pre-trial offer in a case defended by Sean Hynes. The Plaintiff claimed medical bills in excess of $145,000 stemming from a rear-end collision. The jury rejected his claims that the accident resulted in all of his injuries and returned a verdict for approximately 1/3 of his claimed expenses, which was less than the offer to settle that was made before the trial.
