Flanagan Partners defends $4.66 million judgment on appeal.

A truck driver was grievously injured through a forklift operator's negligence. Trial counsel, Jeff Mitchell, Monica Sanchez, and Hugo Chanez, won a judgment of $4.66 million (and a finding of 100% responsibility) against the defendant. Flanagan Partners was retained to defend the judgment on appeal. The defendant argued that the jury had awarded too much money in general damages and in lost wages. After mastering the factual record, and through written and oral advocacy, Flanagan Partners demonstrated that the judgment below was fully supported by the evidence. The appellate court agreed and unanimously affirmed. Sabillon v. Max Specialty Ins. Co., 2014 WL 1028576 (La. App. 4th Cir. 3/12/14).
