Georgia Court of Appeals Affirms Defense Verdict in Burdette v. McDowell et. al. Personal Injury Action

The Georgia Court of Appeals has affirmed a judgement on behalf of Hull Barrett’s client in the Burdette v. McDowell et. al. matter. The basis of the case arises out of a series of collisions in 2003 along a portion of Interstate 20 in Columbia County. The appeal centered on the trial court not admitting hearsay, refusing to  give a requested jury instruction, and refusing to poll the jurors after the verdict. The Court of Appeals affirmed the defense verdict and ruled that the plaintiff failed to show that the trial court abused its discretion in refusing the request to poll the jurors after the verdict. Hull Barrett attorney, Neal W. Dickert, handled the appeal.
