about

the case

Plaintiff's vehicle and Defendants' truck were involved in a side-swipe collision in two left hand turn lanes at an intersection. Plaintiff asserted that she was stopped at the intersection and Defendant Truck Driver was negligent in making a left-turn by entering Plaintiff's lane and striking Plaintiff's vehicle. Plaintiff claimed that the crash caused her injuries to her sacroiliac joint, for which she had to undergo a surgical operation. Defendants denied that they were negligent and claimed that  Plaintiff's vehicle entered the truck's lane and struck the truck as the vehicle and truck were traveling through the intersection. Additionally, Defendants disputed causation, claiming that Plaintiff's complaints were related to injuries she sustained prior to the crash. Defendants also disputed the nature and extent of Plaintiff’s claimed injuries, as well as the reasonableness and necessity of Plaintiff’s medical treatment.
