Survey of Jury Decision in Rockdale County

As any resident of Conyers knows, the County has changed a lot in the last 10 years. What used to be a predominantly white. conservative venue has become much more ethnically diverse and this is showing up in the jury pools. Why does this matter? Because juries ultimately decide what the value of a particular car wreck case is and the more liberal a jury is, the more they tend to award.

Consider the composition of a 12 person jury that a friend had in a June 2017 trial; Plaintiff was a 39 year old black female and defendant was a 21 year old black male.  Jury composed of one Hispanic female, three black males, three white females, and four black females.  That is a drastic change from ten years ago. Not one white male on the jury!

The case was a low impact collision with $700 in damage and around $15,000 in bills and resulted in an $80,000 verdict. Now, that is an outlier but with good medical testimony and no prior care, it is achievable. Typical range on that verdict would be around $25,000.

In January 2017, there was a car accident case verdict with medical bills totaling $47,000 for a fractured kneecap and the jury returned a verdict for $250,000. These numbers used to be unheard of in Rockdale.

In January 2016, a more conservative jury with a State Farm agent as the foreperson awarded $675,000 on a slip and fall case against McDonalds stemming from a mopped floor with no sign. The 17 year old fell and had arthroscopic surgery on both knees to the tune of $45,000 and was in need of another in the future.

In April of 2015, a Rockdale jury returned a $3,250,000 verdict on a commercial trucking case with a truck driver who lied about not running the red light. The plaintiff was a mid 60s female who suffered a broken bone in her neck and multiple rib fractures. She healed up well and had around $100,000 in medical bills. The jury was incensed primarily because of the stubborn refusal of the trucking company to accept responsibility for the crash and failure to pull a driver MVR that would have shown that the driver had other traffic tickets prior to the crash. 

The attorneys at the firm are in the Conyers office on a weekly basis to meet with clients and to pursue cases in the Courts. We find that the slower pace of life and the openness of the community allows the Firm to practice law in the personal fashion we prefer. If you need a Conyers Georgia injury lawyer, please feel free to give us a call.

Client Reviews
My wife and I were hit by a tractor trailer in 2014. After extensive research online, we were deeply impressed with the various reviews we read on Google and Avvo and chose Chris to represent us. We could not have a made a better decision. Chris and his firm treated us like we were their only clients, soothed our worries, and instantly gained our trust. Chris settled both of our cases for more than we expected.
A co-worker of my wife recommended Chris to us. At the very beginning Chris showed that he cared and his knowledge is priceless. Going through this process can be aggravating but Chris did a great job guiding me through this and was always available to answer my questions. Chris fought to get what I deserved even though at times I wanted to give up. Tracy
I want to express my deepest sense of gratitude and appreciation to Attorney Chris Simon & Attorney Chris Carsten, for all the hard work that they put forth into my case (car accident filed after being hit by drunk driver). Their attention to detail and professionalism far surpasses their firm's reputation. Because of their diligence and dedication to their craft, they were able to bring my case to a successful close, one that I could live with. You will not find a better team for your case. Should I have a need for their services again in the future, or know of anyone looking for a top notch Auto Accident Law Firm, I would not hesitate to recommend them!!!! Elle
Wow...Chris is a very good attorney. Me and my son was in a very bad car accident an I was clueless on how to handle the situation. It's very hard to find an attorney who allows you to contact them personally instead of you contacting their asst. I was told that I didn't have a case because the hosiptal put a lien on my acct. Chris prove different and I was able to file my case with the insurance company. The process was very quickly and Im glad I selected the right attorney..Thanks Chris A Car Accident client
