Trials & Appeals
VANDER GEEST v. INSURANCE COMPANY, ET AL.
Decision Date: May 2, 2012
Case No: 10-CV-2640
State of Wisconsin/Circuit Court/Rock County
In this case, the Corneille Law Group successfully defended a driver alleged to have injured the Plaintiff in a motor vehicle accident. The Plaintiff claimed to have incurred $23,587.45 in past medical expenses as a result of neck, back, shoulder and throat injuries she allegedly sustained in the accident. In addition, the Plaintiff's treating neurologist initially supported a claim for $225,957.60 in future medical expenses based upon the contention that the Plaintiff suffered a neurologic injury to her neck. However, the neurologist later retracted this opinion at trial during cross-examination. In closing argument, the Plaintiff requested a total award of $399,545, but was awarded only $55,800.
