Our VerdictsMr. Stephen’s Verdict of June 26, 2015

August 25, 2015

Mr. Stephen defended Mary Stevens in a jury trial tried before the Honorable Thomas Flanagan at the Daley Center in Chicago. The case arose from an accident of May 27, 2010. The plaintiff, Pearl Teverbraugh, alleged that as she walked across 14th Street in Hazel Crest, Ms Stevens, age 89, ran over Ms. Teverbraugh’s foot leading to leg and knee injuries. Ms. Teverbraugh, however, sought medical treatment five days later having denied leg pain at the scene of the accident. Ms. Stevens denied making contact with Ms. Teverbraugh. The plaintiff put into evidence approximately $61,000 in medical bills. Mr. Stephen and Ms. Stevens persuaded the jury that no contact ever took place and the jury returned a verdict of not guilty in favor of Ms. Stevens.
