GMR Wins Summary Judgment in Queens County, NY

Anna Fita-Mellis prevailed on a motion for summary judgment dismissing all claims against her clients in a Queens County matter stemming from a motor vehicle accident. Plaintiffs alleged that they suffered serious injuries in the accident and denied prior injuries to the body parts placed in controversy. In support of the motion, Anna presented evidence that Plaintiffs were previously diagnosed with prior conditions and injuries to the same body parts and their MRIs revealed degenerative changes.  The Court found that the medical evidence presented by the Defendants was sufficient to make out a prima facie case and granted a summary judgment on the issue of threshold.
