A young woman was side-swiped by a tanker truck and seriously injured her back. The lawsuit was filed in New Jersey state court in Camden County. This was a disputed liability case in which the defendant truck driver claimed the plaintiff tried to improperly pass him on the left side. The young woman’s vehicle sustained minimal damage. Both sides retained an accident reconstruction expert to testify at trial. After a rigorous and detailed cross-examination of the defendant’s accident reconstruction expert during a videotaped trial deposition, during which Plaintiff’s counsel painted the expert as a hired gun who had testified thousands of times in nearly every state, the defendant settled the case for $125,000.
