LITIGATION–RELATED AWARDS AND VICTORIES

  • Skylar Rudin was part of a trial team which obtained a verdict in favor of a telecommunications company whose employee had an automobile accident with the plaintiff. The plaintiff alleged that her two-level lumbar surgery was necessitated by the accident. Our client stipulated to liability for the accident but not to causation or damages. The team secured Pre-Trial Orders limiting the testimony of each of the plaintiff’s three medical causation experts. After a two-day trial in federal court, the jury deliberated for twenty-five minutes before returning a verdict finding that the accident did not cause the plaintiff any injury, and that it did not aggravate her preexisting medical spinal condition.
