Defense Verdict - In a jury trial in Meriwether County, Georgia, Ms. Beale, as lead counsel, defended a driver in a personal injury claim stemming from a minor parking lot accident that Ms. Beale’s client admitted to causing. The Plaintiff claimed permanent injuries, one of which required surgical repair of a knee. Ms. Beale’s tireless investigation revealed that Plaintiff had been involved in a second, more serious accident prior to the surgery. On cross-examination, the Plaintiff’s own expert admitted the first minor accident with Ms. Beale’s client may not have caused the knee injury and the surgical repair was probably necessary due to the Plaintiff’s second accident. Despite that testimony, counsel for the Plaintiff asked the jury to award over $100,000.00. Despite the Defendant’s admission of fault for causing the collision, the jury returned a defense verdict, citing Ms. Beale’s skillful closing argument that clearly presented the complicated medical history.

Defense Verdict - In a Gwinnett County jury trial in which Ms. Beale served as lead counsel, she defended an insured in a disputed liability car accident in which Plaintiff had only a few thousand dollars in medical bills, but claimed his injuries resulted in more than $100,000 in lost wages. At the pre-trial hearing, Ms. Beale successfully argued to the Court that due to discovery errors by Plaintiff’s counsel, $84,000.00 of those claimed wages were inadmissible. During trial, Ms. Beale prevailed on her liability defense by impeaching both the Plaintiff and his supporting witness. The jury rendered a defense verdict.

Defense Settlement - In a Barrow County, Georgia jury trial, Ms. Beale served as lead counsel defending an insured who was rear-ended by a vehicle in which the Plaintiff was a passenger. Plaintiff insisted that Defendant was solely at fault and claimed permanent injuries as a result of the accident. Prior to trial, Plaintiff sought more than $48,000 in medical bills and demanded a large amount for pain and suffering. After the cross-examination of the Plaintiff that exceeded two hours and included more than twenty medical record exhibits, Plaintiffs’ counsel sought a settlement agreement from Ms. Beale for only $5,000.00. Such a demand prior to the defense having to present their case-in-chief was an excellent result for the defense.

Defense Verdict - In a jury trial in Fulton County, Georgia, Ms. Beale co-chaired a trial involving disputed liability and damages for an alleged traumatic brain injury exceeding $26,000. Ms. Beale’s cross-examination of Plaintiff’s key eyewitness as to liability was so impactful, the jury disregard that witness’s supporting testimony altogether. The jury returned a defense verdict in less than an hour.
