John Kenefick and Mandi Phillips Win Pre-Trial Elimination of $1M in Claimed Damages

Macdonald Devin Attorneys John Kenefick and Mandi Phillips successfully won a Daubert Motion to strike some of the opinions offered by Plaintiff’s expert in a personal injury case arising out of the alleged injury of Plaintiff truck driver at the Defendant client’s plant. Plaintiff claimed permanent disability as a result of his alleged injury and sought almost $1,000,000 in future lost wages, alone. The Court ruled that the Plaintiff’s expert is not qualified to offer any testimony that the Plaintiff is permanently disabled and is also not qualified to testify as to the value of any future lost wages.

As a result of the Court’s ruling, the Plaintiff’s almost $1,000,000 in claimed future lost wages is eliminated before the trial even starts.
