March 9, 2018

Michael Flynn and Matthew Cianflone secured a defense verdict on behalf of a railroad client in a grade crossing accident case that was tried in Chittenden County, Vermont.

The plaintiff in the case, a Massachusetts resident, allegedly suffered numerous injuries including an alleged traumatic brain injury. Plaintiff’s counsel‘s demands fluctuated but he ended up asking the jury for what essentially amounted to at lease $34 million in compensatory and punitive damages.  After nearly four years of litigation and a three week trial, the jury returned defense verdict in less than four hours.
