Rossi Obtains Defense Jury Verdict

Attorney Pete Rossi obtained a defense jury verdict in Camden County, New Jersey after a four day trial that included testimony from three expert physicians.

This case arose from a 2011 motor vehicle accident.  In the third party matter, Plaintiff recovered against the tortfeasor and was now seeking Underinsured Motorist Benefits from our client.  Plaintiff alleged that as a result of the accident, she suffered a C6-7 disc herniation and C5-6 disc bulge.  Three rounds of injections were performed, and a discectomy or fusion was being recommended by Plaintiff's treating neurosurgeon.

The defense stood in the shoes of the underinsured driver and stipulated to liability.  On the eve of trial, explosive social media evidence was obtained after Plaintiff named a last minute witness.

After 30 minutes of deliberation, the jury found that the Plaintiff did not sustain a compensable injury.
