On November 9, 2018, personal injury attorney Matthew Trollinger spoke to 40 trial attorneys with the Montgomery County Bar Association. The focus of the Rockville meeting was learning trial tactics and strategies to help people hurt in car accidents in Maryland. Matt Trollinger shared cutting edge strategies through a review of one of his most recent jury trials.
Trollinger Law recently received a jury verdict of almost $600,000.00 for two clients injured because a dump truck driver chose to violate the Maryland traffic safety rules. The negligent truck driver not only caused permanent injuries, but also lied about the collision to the police at the scene. The insurance company for the dump truck driver also adopted the lie. Despite all the evidence against their insured, the insurance company fought aggressively against the injured clients.
Trollinger took the dump truck driver and his insurance company to trial to hold them accountable. Matt Trollinger used 3D Animation of the surgeries of his clients. He called the surgeon as a witness to explain the surgeries and how it changed their lives. Coworkers and family were called to testify as well.
After the jury reviewed the evidence, they came back with a verdict of nearly $600,000.00.
This was a homecoming for Trollinger who grew up in Damascus, Maryland. Trollinger was active in his church in Gaithersburg, and was both a coach and swimmer in the Montgomery County Swim League. Matt Trollinger represents clients throughout Maryland including in Montgomery County, Prince George’s County and Charles County.

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
