Attorney Laura Martino obtained a directed verdict on behalf of her clients in a personal injury action. The case arose out a motor vehicle accident in Des Moines in 2019. Following the close of the Plaintiff’s case, Martino moved for a directed verdict asserting the Plaintiff had failed to provide substantial evidence with respect to causation of the Plaintiff’s alleged medical condition. The Iowa District Court for Polk County agreed that the Plaintiff had failed to provide evidence that the accident at issue was the cause of the Plaintiff’s alleged medical condition. Martino’s motion for a directed verdict was granted and the suit was dismissed.
