CVN covered major verdicts won by some of the best plaintiff’s lawyers in Georgia in 2016. CVN Georgia’s Attorney of the Year distinguished himself by going 2-1 in front of CVN cameras, including a critical eight-figure award in Cobb County.
Despite a mountain of evidence and days of testimony, a courtroom gallery can catch its collective breath or a verdict can turn with a single powerful moment in a lawyer's closing or an intense back-and-forth with a key witness. Three of the most memorable moments in CVN's trials last month include:
Marietta, GA--Life expectancy played a central role in last week's trial on damages for the catastrophic brain injury Ehsan Khan, 57, suffered in a 2013 tractor-trailer crash. Khan's attorneys, including Fried Rogers Goldberg's Joe Fried, sought nearly $25 million in damages, including more than $3.6 million for future medical expenses, based on Khan's life expectancy. However, attorneys for trucking firm Moore Freight Service, Inc. and driver John Teal argued damages should be reduced because the crash had significantly shortened Khan's life.
Michael Goldberg delivers his closing rebuttal for Ehsan Khan, who suffered permanent brain damage in a tractor trailer collision. Jurors Wednesday awarded $20 million in the case.
