Our VerdictsMs. Kling Forces Plaintiff to Submit

March 6, 2018

Ms. Kling defended a State Farm insured accused of negligently driving causing Plaintiff’s car to sustain damage of approximately $3,000. The Plaintiff alleged that while she made a right hand turn off a main thoroughfare into a parking lot, Ms. Kling’s client tried to overtake the Plaintiff by driving on the right. The Defendant contended that the Plaintiff made her right turn from the left lane of the road turning into the Plaintiff. The case proceeded to Arbitration and Ms. Kling obtained a not guilty for her client. The Plaintiff paid $200 to the Court Clerk to reject the arbitration award and proceed to trial. Ms. Kling prepared the case for trial and presented several motions to the trial judge attacking the admissibility of what the Plaintiff believed to be proper evidence. The trial judge spent a day hearing argument and ruling in favor of Ms. Kling and her client. After those rulings, the Plaintiff had no choice but to accept a nuisance offer of $250. This matter was Ms. Kling’s first trial case for Beverly and Pause. Her firm is very proud of her diligence, expert preparation, and professionalism.
