|John Kiernan Wins Defense Verdict in Head-on Collision Case|
Bonner Kiernan attorney, John A. Kiernan tried a motor vehicle injury case, involving a head-on collision between a concrete truck owned by our client and a passenger vehicle operated by the plaintiff. In a hotly contested one week jury trial, in August 2012, the plaintiff alleged that our client's concrete truck traveled into his lane and struck him head-on, causing serious and permanent injuries, as well as extensive economic losses. However, after lengthy cross examination of the plaintiff, the jury returned a defense verdict, after less than 30 minutes of deliberations. The plaintiff appealed to the Massachusetts Appeals Court, which affirmed the jury verdict in favor of our client and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court denied further appellate review.
