Thompson & Associates Wins Defense Verdict in Springfield Jury Trial
Fred Thompson and Anastasia Cisarovna received a defense verdict in Springfield in the case of Duke v. Scarlett, a premises/personal injury case. Fred and Anastasia were able to show the client landowner did not breach any duty to the plaintiff with regard to the condition of a sidewalk in front of a military base. They were also able to show the plaintiff was intoxicated. While defense verdicts in personal injury cases are difficult in Springfield, the defense experts, engineer Timothy P. Janes, P.E., and toxicologist Brian Binder, M.D., M.P.H., were virtually unchallenged in their testimony.
