Defense Verdict–Bronx County

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.
