Ben McAninch obtained a defense verdict in a motor vehicle accident case following a two-day jury trial in Waseca County. This case involved an auto vs. bicycle collision that, according to the plaintiff, resulted in a traumatic brain injury. The plaintiff claimed that the defendant was driving too fast for the conditions and failed to maintain an appropriate lookout. The defendant claimed that the accident was the fault of the plaintiff for failing to yield and for performing an improper turn on his bicycle. The parties tried only the issue of liability. The jury returned a verdict of 100% liability on the plaintiff.
