Successfully Dismissed a Case after an Individual Accused a Corporate Executive of Rear-ending Him on a Business Trip
SmithAmundsen represents a national banking organization in a number of premises liability and other litigated matters. Recently, the organization was sued by an individual claiming he was rear-ended by a client’s corporate executive while on a business trip. The executive denied making any contact with the plaintiff, who was claiming significant spinal injuries. After conducting an in depth investigation into the plaintiff, it was discovered that he was playing in a semi-pro basketball league, despite his claims of debilitating injuries. Surveillance was conducted and we obtained footage of the plaintiff playing basketball. The footage was provided to opposing counsel and the case was dismissed.
