Appellant, Ruby Wise, sued appellee, Jacksonville Gas Corporation, for damages resulting from injuries sustained through the alleged negligence of the gas company. The latter denied negligence and alternatively pleaded contributory negligence. The jury found for Ruby Wise, awarded damages in the sum of $15,000, and judgment was entered thereon. Thereafter, the gas company moved for a new trial on the grounds that (1) the evidence did not support the verdict as to liability, and (2) the damages awarded were excessive. The trial court denied the motion as to the issue of liability and the gas company appealed; but granted defendants motion as to the issue of damages, from which order Ruby Wise appealed.
