Ray Ortiz and Megin Koch successfully defended a State Farm insured in one of the first post-pandemic live trials in Nueces County, Texas. The Defendant was allegedly negligent in colliding with the two Plaintiffs from behind causing personal injuries to each Plaintiff. Testifying live were Plaintiffs’ treating chiropractor as well as an accident reconstruction expert who testified for the defense. The Corpus Christi Police Officer who investigated the accident testified by video. Plaintiffs argued for damages in excess of $200,000. After the close of evidence, the jury returned a swift unanimous verdict finding no negligence on the part of the Defendant. Nueces County Court at Law #2 Judge Lisa Gonzalez presided over the trial.
