Favorable Verdict in Erie County Arbitration
Attorney Decker recently secured a favorable verdict for his client in an Erie County compulsory arbitration. The plaintiff alleged serious injuries to her neck, low back, and knees as a result of a rear end motor vehicle accident. The defense admitted to liability but challenged the causal relationship of the alleged injuries to the accident, emphasizing the preexisting conditions in the plaintiff's medical history. The panel returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiff which was significantly less than the final settlement offer before trial.
