A-13-0773, Patrick O’Flannagan v. Elizabeth Oschner (Appellant)
District Court for Adams County, District Judge Terri S. Harder
Attorneys for Appellant: Roger G. Steele & Liana Steele (Steele Law Firm)
Attorneys for Appellee: Sheila A. Bentzen, Peter C. Wegman, & Mark R. Richardson (Rembolt Ludtke Law Firm)
Civil Action: Negligence, personal injury
Action taken by the Trial Court: The trial court entered judgment on a jury verdict in favor of O’Flnannagan in the amount of $500,000 and denied Oschner’s motion for new trial.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Did the trial court err in admitting exhibit 33, an electrodiagnostic evaluation report, into evidence? Did the trial court err in instructing the jury that Ochsner was liable for all damages if the damages caused by the accident could not be separated from those caused by preexisting conditions? Was the jury’s verdict was excessive?
