Personal Injury - Paralysis - Jury Trial

In 2009, Mr. Keller and Mr. Glas represented Joyce Grundmann and her insurer in connection with an auto accident that occurred on November 8, 2005. The plaintiff claimed paralysis as a result of the accident, and her damages exceeded $5,000,000.00. The defendants stipulated to liability, and argued that the accident did not cause plaintiff's alleged injuries. The defendants argued that a rare spinal cord disorder caused plaintiff's paralysis. The jury was unable to answer the first interrogatory as to whether the accident caused plaintiff's alleged injuries. The case was tried before the Honorable Michael Bagneris with the result of a hung jury.
