On Thursday October 31, 2013, an Atlantic County Jury awarded Mike Mackler’s client and wife a $250,000 verdict. Throughout this personal injury case the defendant’s insurance carrier took a “no pay” position, based upon the client’s past medical history.
After the first day of trial, the insurance carrier modified their position and offered the client a $100,000 settlement which was rejected. The trial continued, and was eventually given to a seven member jury to deliberate. After only one hour of deliberations, that jury returned a judgment in favor of Mike’s client in the amount of $250,000.
Mike and his clients were gratified that the jury saw through the defense position and dismissed the idea that the accident wasn't the cause of the clients’ injuries.
