Jury Dispenses Delivers Swift Justice by Rendering a Defense Verdict on Damages in Under One Hour - Alexandra Jacques v. Thomas Joseph Oliveri and Stephen J. Oliveri

David Gould obtained a unanimous defense verdict in the Supreme Court, Nassau County, before Judge Catherine Rizzo in the Alexandra Jacques v. Thomas Joseph Oliveri and Stephen J. Oliveri case, Index Number 608950-20. The plaintiff, a 52-year old Nurses Aide at Northwell Hospital, was the driver of an SUV that was stopped in traffic on the Southern State Parkway in Nassau County when the defendant, Thomas Joseph Oliveri who was 17-years old at the time of the accident, made contact with the rear of her vehicle. The case was tried solely on damages regarding whether the plaintiff sustained a "serious injury". The plaintiff underwent a right knee and right shoulder arthroscopy within four months of the accident. One of the plaintiff''s orthopedic medical experts testified that in his opinion that she will require future cervical and spinal fusion surgeries at a cost of $150,000.00 each. Mr. Gould argued that the impact was merely a minor fender bender and thus it was not the proximate cause of her past surgeries as well as any surgeries that might occur in the future.
