Defense Verdict for Boyd & Jenerette Client

March 14, 2018 by on News

A Florida circuit court jury returned a defense verdict for our client, a car seat manufacturer, after almost three years of litigation and a three-week trial. Plaintiff’s counsel had initially asked the jury to award between $10.5 and $15.5 million in this complex litigation involving a serious spinal injury.

The products liability case was initially filed under four claims: strict liability and negligent design defect, and negligent and strict liability warnings claims. Three claims were dropped before trial, which proceeded only under the negligent design defect claim. Boyd & Jenerette prepared the case for trial, working closely with the client and out-of-state co-counsel.

Partner and Practice Group Leader Peter P. Sledzik led the firm’s trial team, and is available to answer any questions about the case. He exclusively handles all aspects of personal injury litigation in state and federal court.
