Traffic Light Dispute/Personal Injury
Style of Case: Sharon McMurray v. Deloris Fields
Client:    Deloris Fields
Trial End Date:    8/13/2014
Court:    3rd Judicial Circuit, Madison County, Illinois
Type of Case:    Traffic Light Dispute/Personal Injury
Judge:    The Honorable Barbara Crowder
Reed Armstrong Lawyer who tried the case:  Jennifer M. Wagner
Jury Verdict
Plaintiff was attempting a left turn from Route 3 onto Broadway in Venice, Illinois, when she was struck by the Defendant, who was proceeding straight on Route 3 in the opposite direction. Each party claimed that she had the green light. Plaintiff testified in her deposition that she looked to the overhead lights to make her turn, but testified at trial that she looked at the separate left turn signal, mounted on a pole, to make her turn. Photographs of the intersection revealed that the overhead lights controlled only the through lanes, not traffic in the left turn lane, which was controlled by a separate signal. Plaintiff’s deposition testimony was used for impeachment purposes at trial. Plaintiff also sought costs of future medical care, and brought her chiropractor to testify live. On the stand, the chiropractor admitted that his opinion as to Plaintiff’s need for future medical care was largely speculation.  
Last Demand:     $10,000
Verdict:     Defense Verdict
