Brian Greenwood Obtains Defense Verdict on Damages Only Trial

Brian Greenwood recently obtained a defense verdict in a damages only trial in Nassau County.  Prior to trial, the defendants conceded responsibility for the rear end car accident.  The plaintiff claimed that as a result of the accident she suffered a herniated disc in her lumbar spine.  She alleged that the herniated disc was pressing on a nerve root, causing pain and neurological symptoms in her lower back and right leg.  The plaintiff underwent a microdiscectomy followed by a lumbar fusion.  Plaintiff also alleged the need for a second spinal fusion surgery, in the future.  Mr. Greenwood argued that the lower back injury was unrelated to the accident in question.  The jury rendered a verdict in favor of the defendants, finding that the plaintiff’s injuries were not a result of the car accident in question.
