Coppol Preserves $750k Jury Verdict
As a result of this crash on Route 22 in Ebensburg, our client sustained a back injury that ultimately required surgery in order to implant a pain stimulator. Prior to trial, the highest offer made by the trucker’s insurer (Cincinnati Insurance Company) to settle the case was $100,000. Ostroff Law obtained a verdict that was over seven times more than this maximum offer.
The defendant dump truck owner appealed the verdict to the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Ostroff Law won this appeal, preserving the $750,000 jury verdict in favor of our client. In August, a Superior Court panel issued its ruling, rejecting an argument made by the defendant that the jury was prejudiced by evidence presented at the trial about a workers’ compensation settlement our client received from the accident.
