Salem v. the Georgia Department of Transportation

Salem v. the Georgia Department of Transportation; Superior Court of Wayne County
Civil Action File No. 06CV0271
Defense Verdict:  June, 2016

In Salem v. the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Plaintiff sued for a catastrophic brain injury he sustained in an automobile collision which occurred just outside of Jesup, Georgia.  Specifically, Plaintiff contended that DOT and its employees breached their duty of care by failing to follow DOT’s own policies and procedures detailing the specific protocol to follow when a smoke and/or fog hazard existed on a state highway.  In response, Levy & Pruett successfully argued that DOT properly responded to the smoke/fog on the roadway and that the crash was caused by the negligence of the drivers.

On June 24, 2016, after a five-day trial, the jury returned a defense verdict.
