GMR Wins Jury Trial in Bergen County, NJ – Sixth Victory This Year for Thomas Giardina

GMR Senior Associate Tom Giardina won a Bergen County, New Jersey, jury trial in which the Plaintiff alleged ongoing injuries related to a motor vehicle accident.  Specifically, the Plaintiff alleged lower back herniations resulting in multiple injections and surgery.  The Plaintiff also claimed that he stopped working due to the accident and presented a six-figure wage loss claim. 

The defense argued that the Plaintiff’s herniations did not correlate with the exact complaints in the clinical record.  Also, through discovery, prior medical records established pre-existing complaints which Plaintiff had denied earlier in litigation.  Ultimately, the jury concluded that Plaintiff did not meet his burden of proof.
