An Erie County Supreme Court jury wasted no time in finding that Mr. DePaolo’s client was not negligent as alleged by the 30-year-old plaintiff who ran out into the street chasing his dog. Mr. DePaolo’s client was faced with an emergency as he drove his vehicle and had no time to avoid striking the plaintiff. During the trial, the plaintiff admitted that he was not in a crosswalk and that he violated the Leash Law Ordinance. Plaintiff’s counsel asked the jury for $200,000.00. Mr. DePaolo asked the jury to decide that the plaintiff was solely responsible for the happening of the accident and the resulting fracture that required a surgical repair. The verdict of the jury was returned in thirty minutes and awarded no money damages to the plaintiff.
