June 7, 2016

On May 27, 2015, Cecil Floyd won a defense verdict in King v. Jimenez, Index No. 678/2014 (Sup. Ct. Kings County).   The plaintiff claimed that she was stopped at a red light and struck by the defendant’s vehicle.  The plaintiff, who had undergone a cervical discectomy and fusion surgery prior to the subject accident, claimed that as a result of the subject accident, she was caused to undergo a laminectomy with partial fasciotomy, foraminotomy, excision of herniated disc material and bone graft C2-3 and C3-4 and also had lumbar herniated discs.  The plaintiff requested that the jury award $1 million in damages for pain and suffering.  Mr. Floyd argued that the plaintiff’s injuries were pre-existing and the result of prior automobile accidents.  The jury returned a defense verdict finding that the plaintiff did not sustain a “serious injury” within the meaning of Insurance Law section 5102(d).
