A Former Client:
- June 24, 2016, Las Vegas, NV
Roger Davidheiser obtained a $2 million award from a Clark County Nevada jury on behalf of a woman run over in a road rage incident in a Target parking lot in Las Vegas. Jean Kohl suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spine and ankle injuries when she was run over by a pickup truck owned by a local business, Dakem and Associates, driven by its employee, Edward Reed. At trial the defense argued that Mr. Reed was justified and acting in self-defense, and that Ms. Kohl and her boyfriend were at fault and caused Ms. Kohl’s injuries because they decided to get out of their car and continue the confrontation. The jury rejected these arguments and found Mr. Reed at fault, the cause of Ms. Kohl’s injuries, and responsible for her damages. The jury found Dakem liable for the conduct of its employee, Mr. Reed. The jury awarded $522,086 in past and future medical costs and $1.5 million in past and future pain and suffering. Additionally, the jury found that punitive damages were warranted. Just before the start of the punitive damages phase of the trial, the case settled for a confidential amount.
