Court of Appeal Grants New Trial Based on Jury’s Award of Inadequate Damages

May 1, 2020

The Court of Appeal has granted a complete new trial to Martin’s client after a jury awarded him inadequate damages for serious injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident caused by another negligent driver.  The Court of Appeal rejected a defense argument that the trial court should have entered judgment without a trial based on the defendant’s purported acceptance of a pretrial offer for his insurance policy limits.
