JULY 21, 2023 – With a masterful grasp of the evidence, Senior Associate Laura Alto persuaded a Brooklyn jury that plaintiff should receive NO damages-despite our client previously having being found liable for the 2 car collision. Plaintiff claimed a meniscal tear and cervical and lumbar herniations. Plaintiff’s expert was a Harvard-educated pain management specialist, but we argued causation based on the low impact of the accident. We also contended that the lack of corroboration of the extent of plaintiff’s claimed limitations showed plaintiff’s damages claims to be incredulous.
The Brooklyn jury agreed, and non-suited plaintiff based on lack of causation.
