DBJ earned a $2.5 million verdict from a Jackson County, Missouri jury for a woman injured in a car accident. Adrienne Garrison Wayman, of Grain Valley, Missouri, suffered back, hip, and neck injuries when her car was rear-ended, forcing her vehicle into the car in front of her. She subsequently required a cervical fusion for a herniated disk.
After rejecting a $350,000 settlement offer, Grant L. Davis of DBJ took the case to trial. “Over the last 20 years, there’s been such a move toward alternative dispute resolution. It’s almost a religion,” Davis said. “Law students are taught in law school that ADR is good. And the truth of the matter is, sometimes it’s better for your client to have a jury trial.”
