Case Analysis Details

“​​Martinez v. Farmers Market”

Voir Dire, Opening Statement, Closing Argument, & Rebuttal

Vehicle v. pedestrian wrongful death case involving a 75-year-old man who was struck and killed while shopping at the Whittier Farmers Market. The driver of the van was a vendor of the farmers market who had a minimum insurance policy and immediately admitted to liability and tendered the minimum insurance policy. The Whitter Farmers Market had a large insurance policy but disputed any liability which allowed us to open that policy. The goal at trial was to minimize liability on the driver of the vehicle and place all liability on the farmers market. After a short trial in Long Beach, the jury placed 99.5% of the fault on the farmers market.
