Attorney John Uustal Wins One of the Largest Verdicts in the US

A family man, football coach, and former United States Marine had his neck broken in an automobile collision. He worked the night shift at the railroad for a friend and was headed home early that morning for a Fourth of July barbecue. He was hit by a car being driven by a man who had been out all night. The Defendant’s attorney argued that our client was speeding and ran a red light. Attorney John Uustal proved that our client had a green light, and asked the jury to recognize our client’s suffering in their verdict. The jury found the Defendant negligent. The verdict was for over fifty million dollars. It was one of the largest in the country, and the case was featured in national news.
