Jeffrey Czuba Wins Trial in Middlesex County Superior Court

On Friday, February 7, 2014, Partner in the firm Jeffrey Czuba completed a three day automobile liability trial before Judge Paley in Middlesex County Superior Court. This case arose out of a motor vehicle accident on Route 18 in East Brunswick in which the Plaintiff was stopped in traffic when the Defendant struck the rear of Plaintiff’s vehicle.  At trial the Defendant stipulated to liability and the case was tried on the issue of damages alone.  As a result of the accident Plaintiff alleged she sustained multiple permanent injuries.  The defense contended that Plaintiff’s MRI findings pre-existed the accident and that Plaintiff did not sustain permanent injury as a result of the accident. After 30 minutes of deliberation the jury rendered a verdict in favor of our client, the Defendant, finding that Plaintiff failed to prove that she sustained a permanent injury proximately caused by the accident.
