Jury Foreman Blogs About Golkow Hessel Trial
Following a recent trial in Philadelphia, the Jury Foreman posted the following blog about the trial:
"I was selected on a Jury on Monday and now that the case is over I can talk about it...
The short of it was.. Guy in Pick-up truck was going through a Green light when a cop car was approaching ... he came to a controlled stopped then a Mac truck hit him from behind... The Mac truck said he saw the cop coming ... had 4 to 6 seconds then hit the pick-up. The man in pick-up hurt his lower back (his L1/S1 disk). The defense used 2 arguments.. "There was no hurt disk" and the hurt disk came from 12 years ago in a different car wreck... The MRI showed injury...
So... how much??
$9,700 for bills, $150,000 for non economic damages, $15,000 to the man's wife for her suffering (having to do things differently with him being hurt)
I was the foreman so I stood up and read the verdict!! so exciting!! :)
Here is the Lawyer that kicked ass... if you need to sue someone... use these guys!
Daniel L. Hessel, Esquire was the best I have seen... so well organized and VERY quick and sharp
I got $52.00 for my 4 days and don't have to serve for 3 years!! :)"
