Lanier Brown and Jeremy Gaddy Secure Defense Verdict

The Huie defense team of Lanier Brown and Jeremy Gaddy secured a defense verdict for a national restaurant client on November 17, 2016, in Shelby County, Alabama.

During the trial, the Defendant presented evidence that the floor was reasonably safe, that Plaintiff was contributorily negligent in causing the fall, and that the wet floor was an “open and obvious” condition that Plaintiff should have recognized.

At the close of the four-day trial, the Shelby County jury returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant.
