McCandlish Holton Attorneys Successfully Defended Traumatic Brain Injury Case 

McCandlish Holton attorneys D. Cameron Beck Jr. and Audra Dickens recently defended a national trucking company in a five-day federal jury trial in the Western District of Virginia, Harrisonburg Division.  The Defendants admitted liability, but contested the plaintiff’s damages.

This case involved complicated medical issues, including pre-and post-accident traumatic brain injuries, as well as claims of PTSD.  The Plaintiff called seven doctors to testify in addition to a life care planner and economist.  The Plaintiff claimed $813,000 in medical damages, including lifelong treatment for her brain injury.  Plaintiff’s counsel requested $8.8 million in closing.  After only two hours, the jury awarded the plaintiff $850,000 with no pre-judgment interest.
