Case won't be heard by Supreme Court despite arguments

Sometimes, when there are problems with the verdict of a case, a defendant's legal team will appeal it. That happened in a case that went to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, but the court has decided not to hear arguments about the case.

The case involves the family of a 6-year-old child who was killed in an auto accident. The case was filed after an incident where the victim's vehicle had malfunctioned, resulted in him stopping it in the middle of a Route 28. Inside, his vehicle contained his two sons and wife.

A Ford F-150 collided with the vehicle, which resulted in one child's death. The three others were injured, resulting in the parents suffering concussions, bruises, lumbar spine fractures, abrasions and lacerations. The other son had seizures, either at the scene or on the way to the hospital, that required him to stay in the hospital for four days.

An Allegheny County jury found in the plaintiff's favor, but a Superior Court vacated that decision due to several defendants, including those who provided service on the man's vehicle prior to the crash, being included when they should not have been. Fortunately, it won't affect the family's case because the attorney pointed out that they had already accepted a settlement with the defendants who were involved in the case.

In most cases, settlements are the final resolution, which can mean that a court's findings one way or another doesn't have much to do with payouts. Your attorney can talk to you about how a court's decision could affect your case.
