David Gould Gets Another Verdict in Under 20 Minutes

David Gould does it again, this time in a case before Judge John Katsonis in the Queens County Civil Court. The plaintiff in the case was a driver in a two-car collision in December 2014, in Nassau County. The only issue to be decided was whether the plaintiff established a "serious injury." She claimed that she sustained a herniated disc in her neck and bulging discs in her back as a result of the accident. David argued that the impact was so slight that it could not have caused the injuries she claimed. The jury deliberated for all of 19 minutes and rendered a unanimous defense verdict holding that she did not sustain a "serious injury."
