Plaintiff Verdict Affirmed on Appeal

LDM attorneys Bill Lamson and Cathy Trent-Vilim recently obtained a ruling from the Nebraska Supreme Court affirming a $1 million plaintiff’s verdict.  In Werner v. County of Platte, the Court rejected the County’s objections to the trial court’s receipt of certain evidence, and its determination that the plaintiff was an “innocent third party” for purposes of Nebraska’s vehicular pursuit strict liability statute, and upheld the trial court’s judgment for Mr. Werner in the amount of $1 million, the maximum permitted by Nebraska law.
