Henderson vs. LAMA
Resulted in a defense verdict. Plaintiff was the driver of a vehicle that he claims was rear-ended by an MTA bus. Although it was undisputed that plaintiff's vehicle was in fact rear-ended, we argued at trial that plaintiff was solely responsible for the incident as he repeatedly accelerated and decelerated his vehicle directly in front of the bus. When plaintiff did this a third time, the bus was unable to avoid impacting the rear of plaintiff's vehicle. Plaintiff was impeached at trial with respect to his description of the accident and his injuries. After a one-week trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the MTA.
