Meier v. Blackman
William Lewis defended this lawsuit involving a one-vehicle accident in Atchison County. Plaintiff’s decedent was ejected from the vehicle and suffered fatal injuries. Although State Farm paid the policy limit of $50,000, the Plaintiff refused to release the Defendant and elected to proceed to trial. The case was tried in Holt County from June 24-26, 2009. At trial, the Plaintiff requested $750,000 from the jury. The jury returned with a verdict assessing zero fault to the Defendant.
