July 8 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT
In February 2017, Craig Sherwood, a 37-year-old real estate agent from Toronto, was killed at SpeedVegas when the 2015 Lamborghini Aventador he was driving struck a barrier, causing the fuel tank to fail and starting a fire. Representing Mr. Sherwood’s heirs, PSBR partner Rahul Ravipudi and attorneys Paul Traina and Ian Samson litigated the case against SpeedVegas LLC and Lamborghini, developing negligence and product liability claims through intensive discovery and extensive expert work-up and fending off defense arguments of medical emergency and assumption of the risk. Along with renowned jury consultant Sonia Chopra, Rahul, Paul, and Ian explain the work that led to a successful result for their clients and share video clips of jury selection and witness testimony from the May 2022 trial in Las Vegas, Nevada.
