A-M Law shareholder Joseph S. Mierzejewski recently completed a four day Trial in Lapeer County Circuit Court, winning a judgment of No Cause for Action. Plaintiff, his wife, and his granddaughter were occupying Plaintiff’s truck when they were struck in the rear by Defendant’s insured, traveling to 80-100 mph. Both vehicles were totaled. Plaintiff claimed to have sustained a serious impairment of a body function resulting in fusion surgery to his sacroiliac joint, left shoulder rotator cuff surgery, and right knee surgery. Liability was admitted. The case was tried on the issues of causation and serious impairment. Plaintiff presented three expert witnesses, a neurosurgeon, an orthopedic surgeon, and a pain management specialist. The defense called an orthopedic surgeon expert witness. Mr. Mierzejewski’s cross-examination of Plaintiff, relying on voluminous records, was effective in raising significant questions regarding Plaintiff’s credibility. In closing argument, it was argued that, although negligence was admitted, Plaintiff’s injuries were limited to soft tissue sprains and strains, and the surgeries were not due to injuries that arose out of the accident.
After 35 minutes of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict finding that Defendant was negligent, the negligence caused injuries to Plaintiff, the injuries were proximately caused by Defendant, but Plaintiff’s injuries did not rise to the level of a serious impairment of a body function.
