Phil Collins Wins Jury Trial in Nash County

June 7, 2018

Phil Collins recently obtained a no liablity verdict for his client in a motor vehicle negligence action in Nash County Superior Court.  The impact occurred when the defendant was passing the plaintiff in a "no passing" zone and the plaintiff, who was operating a moped, was in the process of turning left into his driveway.  Conflicting evidence was presented with respect to the plaintiff's turn signal, when the plaintiff initiated his turn, and whether the plaintiff may have been intoxicated.  The jury found the plaintiff was contributorily negligent and that the defendant did not have the last clear chance to avoid the accident.
