Montgomery County Jury Trial Defense Verdict in Stipulated Liability Case

Matthew Moroney prevailed in a Montgomery County lawsuit involving a rear-end motor vehicle accident.  The defense stipulated to liability for the accident.  At trial, the jury heard that the plaintiff’s car was declared a total loss by her insurance company and she presented to an emergency room after the accident.  Thereafter, she presented to a doctor’s office for six months for alleged neck and back injuries.  The plaintiff had no prior neck or back injuries.  In the defense case, Mr. Moroney presented the testimony of the treating doctor, who admitted that his office’s reports were in the name of a doctor who never treated the plaintiff.  Additionally, the treating doctor admitted his records listed patient limitations, which the plaintiff never identified.  Ultimately, Mr. Moroney argued that the plaintiff’s evidence lacked credibility.  The jury agreed and rendered a defense verdict, specifically  finding that the plaintiff did not suffer any injury that was factually or legally caused by the accident.
