TT&H Attorney Lacey Conn wins dismissal of multi-million dollar wrongful death suit.
January 27, 2020
Attorney Lacey Conn recently won the dismissal of a wrongful death suit with multi-million dollar exposure. The action had been filed in Fauquier County, Virginia. The case arose out of a December 23, 2016 motor vehicle accident where the 37 year-old decedent ran off an interstate and into the end of a guardrail, which speared and killed her. The plaintiffs alleged, in part, that the guardrail was improperly installed. Lacey’s client allegedly trained a third-party about how to install the guardrail. Lacey successfully argued that Virginia law did not recognize a tort for negligent training, convincing the Court to dismiss the case, with prejudice.
