Do Not Mess with Her!

Rebecca Smith wins again.  After getting a great award at the Workers’ Compensation Commission for her client, the employer, Coca-Cola Refreshments USA, appealed the decision to the Circuit Court for Washington County.  After receiving the employer’s appeal, Rebecca cross-appealed, seeking a finding of “perm total.”

Depositions were taken.  Extensive preparations were made.  Then, this past week, a Hagerstown jury heard two days of testimony and argument.  Rebecca’s client testified about how life changing the injuries were.

After an hour and a half, the jury returned a verdict finding in favor of Rebecca’s client.   Coca-Cola Refreshments USA thought the case was worth about $50,000 to Rebecca’s client.  The jury’s verdict was actuarially worth more than $800,000!

Rebecca Smith is not afraid.  She will not be bullied by corporate giants.  She will stand up for her clients.

Do Not Mess with Her.
