|Defense Verdict in Boston for Stephen Hughes|
Kiernan Trebach trial attorney Stephen Hughes obtained a defense verdict in favor of a Boston area construction company after a 10-day jury trial. The case involved an alleged catastrophic personal injury sustained in a fall from a ladder on a construction site. Plaintiff claimed that he was forever unable to work after the incident and his counsel argued that $2,500,000 in damages should be awarded by the jury.
Our trial team’s selection and examination of several fact witnesses and multiple experts in the fields of workplace safety, ladders, medicine, vocational rehabilitation and economics, compelled a jury to find in favor of our client and to enter a defense verdict after the conclusion of evidence and closing argument.
