James v. Colonial Steel Corp. and Robert Goodlett
In James v. Colonial Steel Corp., plaintiff was involved in an automobile accident with our client on the Bruckner Expressway. As a result of the accident, plaintiff allegedly sustained internal derangement of her left knee and a torn meniscus, requiring her to undergo two arthroscopic procedures subsequent to the accident. At the damages trial, Peter Lo Palo successfully argued that the condition of plaintiff’s knee pre-existed the date of the accident and that neither arthroscopic procedure was necessitated by the car accident. The jury returned with a defense verdict.
