Partner Brian Greenwood Obtains Defense Verdict in a Motor Vehicle Case

Brian Greenwood obtained a defendant’s verdict on Wednesday June 29, 2016, before Justice Taylor in Supreme Court, Queens County.  The case involved a two car motor vehicle accident on Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont.  The plaintiff made a left turn in front of our client and the collision ensued.  Plaintiff alleged he was initially traveling eastbound on Hempstead Turnpike when he attempted to make a left turn to proceed north.  He testified he started his left turn, but stopped across the left westbound lane of traffic, waiting for two cars traveling in the right westbound lane of traffic to pass so he could complete his left turn.  According to plaintiff, our client then changed from the right westbound lane to the left westbound lane, striking the plaintiff’s car.  Our client maintained that he was traveling at the speed limit in the right line on westbound Hempstead turnpike when the plaintiff suddenly made a left turn in front of his vehicle, not allowing him time to break, swerve or take any other evasive action to attempt to avoid the collision.   The jury returned a verdict finding the defendant was not negligent.
