K.C. Harpring and Sean Dormer obtained a plaintiff’s verdict recently in a trial in Boulder District Court against Mark Gauthier of the Ross-Shannon Law firm.
DH’s client was injured in a low-speed rear-end car crash, but he also caused a second (high-speed) crash only four months later. Mark Gauthier was retained by Allstate to represent the at-fault driver in the first crash. Mr. Gauthier argued that the second crash caused the majority of DH’s client’s injuries and requested a complete defense verdict.
Despite a litany of objections by Mr. Gauthier and numerous unfavorable rulings by the court, the jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff in the amount of $11,990.03. After the addition of interest and costs, the award will be approximately 15 times Allstate’s initial offer of settlement and almost double its final offer before trial.
“We believed in our client and we wanted a much bigger win,” said Sean after the verdict, “but it feels really good to have a jury find for us in the face of so many obstacles. We owe a lot to our co-workers, friends, and family for helping us so much in getting ready.”
Mr. Gauthier and the Ross-Shannon Law firm have decades of experience representing the financial interests of insurance companies and corporations, and have obtained numerous defense verdicts in similar cases.
DH and the firm’s client are considering whether to appeal the court’s objection rulings, request a new trial, and seek a more full measure of justice.
