"A Gwinnett County jury awarded $17.8 million to the widow of a man who plummeted three stories to his death after trying to close an improperly installed dormer window, Lawrenceville attorney Steven Pickens said Friday.
After more than three days of testimony, a 12-person jury took Thursday afternoon and part of Friday morning to reach the verdict in the wrongful death case against Lawrenceville business Classic Millwork Designs, said Pickens of Mahaffey Pickens Tucker in Lawrenceville. Pickens and two colleagues, attorneys Gerald Davidson and Catherine Schutz, represented Trish Blackwell and the estate of her late husband, Gwinnett County homebuilder Wade Blackwell, Pickens said. Born in 1962, Blackwell died in May 2015, Pickens said."
Attorneys Steve Pickens and Gerald Davidson worked tirelessly to secure this verdict for the Blackwell family.
