After a week-long trial in which plaintiff alleged severe physical and mental injuries left her disabled after being hit by a shopping cart in our client’s retail store, a Kansas Federal jury returned a verdict finding our client to be 100% at fault. Throughout the litigation, the client admitted the shopping cart had struck plaintiff (as shown by surveillance video), but disputed plaintiff’s alleged damages. The jury awarded plaintiff $13,151 in medicals, $3,000 in pain and suffering, $0 for lost wages, $0 for future medicals, and $0 for loss of earning capacity, for a total judgment of $16,151. Plaintiff, before trial, demanded $265,000 and rejected defendant’s $25,000 offer to settle. At trial, plaintiff asked for $2,000,000.
