The Cochran Firm, D.C. Announces $1.026 Million Verdict on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in Personal Injury Lawsuit
Date:10/21/2013

Washington, D.C (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

The Cochran Firm, D.C. today announces that David Haynes, its managing partner, secured a $1.026 million verdict on Oct. 10, 2013, in the case of Michael and Amanda Spence v. Thomas E. Shockley, et al., Case No. 22-C-11-001912 MT, in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, Maryland.

In the collision, the court documents state that the injured victim suffered serious injuries, including the permanent loss of an eye. His wife, who was a passenger in the vehicle, suffered a fractured hip.

After the violent crash, the victim and his wife chose The Cochran Firm, D.C. to represent them in filing a claim against the occupants of the vehicle towing the farm equipment and their employers. During the subsequent trial, a Wicomico County jury heard extensive testimony including expert witnesses, police officers, paramedics, and medical doctors, according to court documents. Wicomico County is a rural farming county located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. To provide high-caliber legal representation for the injured victims, The Cochran Firm, D.C. conducted depositions, condu
