Karl Chambers tried the case of Grace Stean and Adam Stevens v. Margaret Molloy in a four day trial in Arapahoe District Court.
This action arose out of a motor vehicle accident involving plaintiff’s wife, Grace Stean, and our client, Margaret Molloy. Ms. Stean claimed that she was injured in the accident, including an alleged mild traumatic brain injury and a cervical facet injury. Plaintiff, Adam Stevens, was not involved in the accident, but claimed that he suffered a loss of consortium due to his wife’s injuries. We admitted that defendant negligently caused the accident, but challenged the injuries and damages claimed by Ms. Stean and her husband. Ms. Stean settled her claim prior to trial and Mr. Stevens elected to litigate his loss of consortium claim. Our defense was that he did not suffer a loss of consortium. The jury agreed and returned a defense verdict finding that Mr. Stevens did not suffer a loss of consortium.
