MOTOR VEHICLE LAW: Trial Court denies Motion to Strike statutory recklessness count, finding jury could find recklessness based on conduct alleged
The trial court denied defendant’s Motion to Strike the statutory recklessness count in a rear-end…
In an underinsured motorist claim, the jury concluded that the motor vehicle accident was solely the fault of the underinsured driver. The jury awarded approximately $17,000.00 in economic damages for medical expenses, but awarded no noneconomic damages. The court found this award to be manifestly unjust and unreasonable. The court granted the plaintiff’s motion for additur in the amount of $10,000.00 for noneconomic damages.
