On October 23, 2019, attorney Adam Bates obtained a defense verdict in a Cass County District Court trial involving Plaintiffs’ claims for damages allegedly arising out of a motor vehicle accident. Plaintiffs brought a negligence claim against Mr. Bates’ client, alleging they sustained injury and damages as a result of Mr. Bates’ client backing into Plaintiffs’ pick-up truck. Mr. Bates’ client admitted her fault for the accident but disputed Plaintiffs were injured as a result of the collision. The jury returned a verdict finding Plaintiffs failed to prove by a preponderance of the evidence the accident resulted in injury and damages to the Plaintiffs, awarding them no damages.
