Steven G. Schwartz, Esq.
June 23, 2010

Senior appellate counsel, Steve Schwartz won a major appellate reversal in the Second District Court of Appeal overturning a high six figure jury verdict in a commercial multi-vehicle auto accident case in favor of a drywall installer for future diminished earnings because the verdict lacked reasonable certainty of calculated projected amounts.  The plaintiff's award for future medical care was also struck down as lacking sufficient evidence, this element of the verdict resulting in a substantial remitittur. A copy of the court ruling in Pruitt, Bratton Land Care, Inc. v Perez-Gervert, 41 So.3d 286 (Fla. 2d DCA 2010) is attached.
