No charges were brought against the client-driver and the ensuing civil litigation was eventually dropped with no money being paid to anyone by any of our clients; Granted summary judgment in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in a catastrophic construction loss where the demand was in excess of $9 million when the Motion was granted; Successfully defended a commercial vehicle client in a rear-end automobile accident that resulted in two major lower back surgeries to the Plaintiff.
