David Mangum v. Frank P. Stallone – Jury Verdict $603,792.86
Insurance Bad Faith / Excess Verdict Cases – Jury Verdict $603,792.86. April 2005
Mr. Mangum was driving his vehicle and exiting a parking lot in Boca Raton. As Mr. Mangum pulled out of the lot, the defendant, who was traveling north, changed lanes and collided with Mr. Mangum’s vehicle. Mr. Mangum sustained a herniated disc requiring surgery, a rotator cuff tear and labrel tear to this left shoulder which also required surgery. Mr. Stallone’s insurance carrier claimed that the accident was entirely Mr. Mangum’s fault. They further claimed that Mr. Mangum’s surgeries were necessitated by a subsequent accident. The insurance company would therefore not tender their insurance limits of $50,000.00. The case was tried by Robert B. Baker and the jury rendered a verdict of $603,792.86 for Mr. Mangum.
