Hadden wins victory for Plaintiff at Georgia Court of Appeals

Posted by John Hadden | Aug 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Georgia Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld a jury verdict in favor of an injured deliveryman over the defendant homebuilder's claims that he had contributed to his injury or assumed the risk of that injury.  The plaintiff was seriously injured while making an early-morning delivery to a home site that was under construction by the defendant contractor.  The contractor had failed to put up barriers and warning devices that witnesses testified should have been present and which could have prevented the injuries.  The jury had found the contractor liable and further found that the plaintiff's negligence was less than the contractor's. 

The case is Pritchard Bros., Inc., v. Houston, Georgia Court of Appeals case number A11A1076.  Atlanta Attorney Jay Sadd served as trial counsel, with John Hadden representing the plaintiff in the appeal.

Note: Readers are reminded that despite our success in this case, every case is different, and past results do not guarantee future success.

"Working with John was my first experience with the legal system. John explained everything thoroughly to me and helped me weigh the pros and cons of each potential decision. He was readily available whenever I had a question or a concern about my case. I would highly recommend John to anyone in need of legal representation. He is professional yet still very down to earth.”
