Turkheimer & Hadden submits amicus curiae brief to Supreme Court

On Friday Turkheimer & Hadden Partner John Hadden, with fellow lawyer Mathew Nasrallah, submitted a brief to the Georgia Supreme Court as amicus curiae on behalf of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. The brief was submitted jointly in the cases of State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. v. Adams and American International South Insurance Company v. Floyd. Oral argument in the cases will take place Monday, April 5, 2010. The cases concern the extent to which persons injured in automobile collisions can recover payments from their own uninsured motorist carrier where the at-fault driver's insurance coverage has been used to pay hospitals and other medical providers. Writing on behalf of the injured parties, the brief urges the Supreme Court to allow access to the full extent of uninsured motorist coverage.

Mr. Hadden is an active member of the GTLA amicus committee, which supports parties injured or damaged due to the acts of others in both state and federal appellate courts. Earlier this year, Mr. Hadden submitted a brief to the Georgia Court of Appeals, again on behalf of GTLA, in the case of Cavailier Convenience v. Sarvis, which concerned the method by which damages are apportioned in Georgia where multiple defendants are at fault.
