Admission of Evidence of Other Accidents Is the Basis for Reversing $53 Million Verdict

Godfrey v. Precision Airmotive Corp., 46 So. 3d 1020, 1022 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2010)

CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.

In Godfrey v. Precision Airmotive Corp., 46 So. 3d 1020, 1022 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2010), the court reversed a $53 million verdict against Teledyne and ordered a new trial again on the improper admission of evidence concerning other accidents. Bowman and Brooke attorneys were also successful on this issue in Hall-Edwards v. Ford, 971 So. 2d 854 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2007), Bowman and Brooke attorneys obtained a reversal of a $60 million verdict because the court erred as a matter of law in admitting evidence of other accidents without requiring the plaintiff to meet their burden of proving substantial similarity.
