Attorney obtained a defense verdict at trial
Attorney obtained a defense verdict at trial. Plaintiff had sought coverage under the UIM portion of his motorcycle policy, claiming he had met the verbal threshold because his disc bulges and hairline fracture of the sternum were sufficient as a permanent injury. Plaintiff had been involved in 8 accidents before the accident in question and 2 accidents after. The Court also ruled for the defense on a motion in limine regarding the interpretation of the UIM arbitration appeal clause, barring plaintiff from arguing that his tort selection on his auto policy should not apply to his motorcycle. After a six-day trial, the jury found that Plaintiff had not sustained a permanent injury and was not entitled to an award of damages.
