MFTL obtains a jury verdict for $620,000 against lawyer for legal malpractice

Carroll v. Shepherd and National Casualty

Laurel Circuit Court (2007)
James Carroll was seriously injured in a car wreck along I-75. He hired a local southeastern Kentucky lawyer, who missed the statute of limitations.  MFTL took the legal malpractice case against the lawyer.  MFTL tried the case on July 26, 2007, and asked the jury to award $620,000 in damages against the lawyer.  The jury did exactly what MFTL asked them to do, and awarded, to the penny, the amount claimed.
