Leland Smith Wins Car Wreck Case in Hinds County

January 23, 2013.

Leland Smith was successful in defending a lawsuit arising out of a vehicular collision in Hinds County, Mississippi.  In Thomas v. Killingsworth, Mr. Smith’s client testified that she lawfully proceeded through the intersection of Highway 18 and McDowell Road as she was making a lefthand turn.  The adverse party testified that Mr. Smith’s client ran the red light.  Even though additional witnesses testified on behalf of the other party, the Hinds County jury found Mr. Smith’s client to have more credibility and rendered a verdict in her favor.
