Melton Secures Favorable Defense Verdict in Cook County Jury Trial
The jury in a recent Cook County trial concerning a rear-end motor vehicle accident not only limited the total verdict amount to a fraction of what was requested by the plaintiff, it awarded him nothing for pain and suffering. A key part of attorney Isaac Melton’s defense in the case involved retaining a biomechanical expert to discuss the severity of the accident and conducting a strong cross-examination of the plaintiff’s medical expert.
Melton, a partner in the firm’s Chicago office, focuses his practice on first- and third-party insurance defense and insurance coverage cases, along with fraud and bad faith litigation. He also does extensive work counseling and representing insurers on issues involving medical fraud.
