Client Obtains $1 Million Judgment

Posted by Matthew J. Devoti on January 20, 2012

A Pulaski County judge recently awarded $1 million to a man represented by Casey & Devoti.

The man was a passenger in a Toyota 4Runner involved in a motor vehicle collision on a rural highway in Pulaski County. The 4Runner left westbound Raleigh Road when its driver attempted to navigate a curve at too high a speed. The truck rotated clockwise before overturning.
