Thaddeus J. Hubert, IV prevails in an automobile liability trial in Middlesex County before Judge Lisa Vignuolo. Plaintiffs, a husband and wife, sued Ted’s client for damages arising from the car accident. Plaintiff wife claimed she sustained a torn rotator cuff in her shoulder and a torn meniscus in her knee resulting in surgery for both injuries. She also claimed she sustained an aggravation of a pre-existing back injury. Plaintiff husband claimed he sustained a disc herniation in his lower back, a knee injury and an injury to his nose requiring surgery.
The jury found plaintiff wife primarily at fault for causing the accident and she was not awarded any damages. The jury awarded only a nominal amount of $10,000 to plaintiff husband.
