Defense Succeeds in Reducing Damages in Rear-End Collision Trial

On April 24, 2024, one of the newest members of Baker Sterchi’s team, a first-year Associate, successfully defended a rear-end collision case in the Small Claims Division of the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri.

The incident occurred when the client was driving the wrong way on a one-way street and stopped in front of the plaintiff's car, causing plaintiff to stop as well. Subsequently, another vehicle rear-ended the plaintiff’s car, but that defendant was dismissed from the case due to lack of service.

The focus of the defense was on the determination damages to plaintiff’s vehicle. Our Baker Sterchi team member successfully limited the plaintiff’s damage claim to well below the amount requested. The court concluded that the total damages should be based on the lower estimate provided by the defense, which was accepted as the most reliable evidence during the trial.
