Case reassigned after discovery cutoff in trial strategy following unsuccessful motion for summary judgment brought by prior counsel’s office. 18-year old plaintiff claimed low back surgery and soft tissue injuries arising out of MVA at uncontrolled intersection. Plaintiff alleged our client was negligent in failing to provide a clear line of sight for drivers using abutting roadway and told us we needed to make a “significant offer” to resolve the case before trial. He asked jury for $250,000-$750,000 and the jury returned a defense for our client.
