During the week of September 13, Michael Kuehner successfully defended an Woodbury County automobile driver in a lawsuit stemming from a rear-end car accident. At trial, Plaintiff alleged that the accident caused him serious low back pain and leg numbness. He presented testimony from a treating physician stating his injuries were permanent, and they would require treatment for the rest of his life. After admitting fault for the accident, the defense was able to rebut the allegations on cross examination, and present testimony from a back specialist that there were no injuries related to the accident. The jury rejected Plaintiff’s claims and awarded a defense verdict.
