CLEVELAND (PRWEB) May 31, 2019
The plaintiff was a 59-year-old male from Medina County. According to court documents, the plaintiff was crossing the street with his best friend on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio and was struck by a car that then fled the scene. Court documents also showed that the plaintiff was briefly knocked unconscious, had lacerations on his face (under his eyebrow), and suffered a knee injury that was later determined to be an ACL tear as well as medial/lateral meniscus tears. The case was tried exactly 3 years from the date of the crash (Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, State of Ohio, Judge Nancy Margaret Russo).
The father/son duo of Attorneys Jamie Lebovitz & Jordan Lebovitz tried the case on behalf of the injured client in Judge Nancy Margaret Russo's room over the course of two and a half days (Case No CV 18 892335). The defendant was The Cincinnati Insurance Company to whom the plaintiff had paid premiums in order to provide him with uninsured motorists coverage in case of a rare event like this “hit and run.”
The jury unanimously awarded the plaintiff $75,000 for past pain and suffering, $325,000 for future pain and suffering. They also awarded the plaintiff's spouse $15,000 for past loss of consortium and $15,000 for future loss of consortium for a total verdict of $430,000.
