Defense Verdict for Retail Chain Client in Slip & Fall Claim
Attorney Randy Moody obtained a defense verdict in a jury trial in the State Court of Clayton County on behalf of a major retail chain. Plaintiff alleged a fall due to a store's negligence and amassed approximately $30,000 in medical expenses for treatment that included leg surgery with significant scarring and claimed permanent impairment and loss of mobility. After the verdict and judgment, Randy Moody obtained a judgment against the plaintiff for over $40,000 in attorney fees and expenses since the plaintiff rejected a pretrial offer of settlement under OCGA 9-11-68.
