A thirty-year-old man (Mr. X), a husband and father of a young son was driving to work, a job in general construction. He was at a stop light and a woman (Miss Y) was momentarily distracted and rammed him from behind.
The accident did not seem that bad, and the claim so severe I was skeptical.
I was now leaning towards the disability being genuine.
Was my time and the time of the court and other jurors a waste? I don't think so. I think it sometimes takes going to court, and having a jury trial process to force both parties hand and start talking to reach a reach a fair settlement.
