Daily Journal Names Yukevich | Cavanaugh Win as a Top Defense Verdict for 2017
Mar 2, 2018
Every year, Daily Journal releases a special supplemental Top Verdicts issue, which highlights the best trial outcomes from the previous year. The 2018 issue again names a Yukevich | Cavanaugh case as one of the top results for defense firms in 2017. This is the eighth time that the firm has made the cut in the last nine years.
Firm managing partner Jim Yukevich acted as lead counsel for Takata Corp. and TK Holdings Inc. in Herbert v. Ford Motor Company et al. The plaintiff sought more than $25 million after suffering a traumatic brain injury, which the defense alleged stemmed from her failure to wear a seat belt. Mr. Yukevich, along with Yukevich | Cavanaugh associate Michael D. Johnson, convinced the jury that the seat belt was not defective and garnered a full defense verdict in March 2017 after a ten week trial.
