Jason Schutte obtains excellent Sangamon County Jury Verdict

This trial revolved around a car collision personal injury claim occurring in Sangamon County Illinois.  Jason G. Schutte represented the defendant.  We admitted fault and proceeded to trial on the issue of damages.  Plaintiff complained of numerous injuries to his neck, back and lower extremities.  The defense pointed out numerous gaps in plaintiff's post accident medical treatment, that his complaints changed in type and location during his post accident treatment and that plaintiff suffered from extensive degenerative conditions that existed before the accident.

Plaintiff's demanded $15,000.00 to settle the case before the trial.  Plaintiff requested an award from the jury of just over $18,000.00.  The defense recommended that the jury enter a verdict awarding slightly under $4000.00 to settle the case.  The jury returned a verdict of $7592.00 which did not award all of plaintiff's claimed medical bills.
