Rondiene Novitz and Scott Gurtman successfully attained a defense verdict in a motor vehicle accident case, defending Cox Radio and WBAB. The WBAB van driver was accused of pulling the vehicle off the road, suddenly and unexpectedly stopping without cause, 600 feet from the nearest intersection. Plaintiff, represented by the law firm Torgan, Cooper & Aaron, put up nine witnesses, including their expert, Robert Genna, Director of the Suffolk County Crime Laboratory. The jury deliberated just one hour and found that the WBAB driver was not negligent. Plaintiff suffered extensive injuries, including a fractured femur requiring surgery and a fractured wrist that required several surgeries and which developed necrosis. The demand was $2,000,000. No offer was ever made.
