GMR Senior Associate Tom Giardina won a Philadelphia County jury trial in which Plaintiff sued, alleging ongoing injuries related to a rear-end collision.
Plaintiff alleged sustaining disc herniations and a left shoulder injury that resulted in physical therapy and injection treatment. Tom argued that the objective testing only showed degenerative conditions unrelated to the accident at issue. Plaintiff’s counsel argued that Plaintiff had never previously sustained injuries to her neck and left shoulder, making her treatment causally related to the accident.
Ultimately, the jury concluded that Plaintiff did not meet her burden of proof on damages.
