LCBF obtains defense verdict on liability in traumatic brain injury case

In Skorupski v. Paley, a Monmouth County, New Jersey jury returned a defense verdict in favor our clients following a three- week trial.  Plaintiff allegedly sustained mild traumatic brain injuries as a result of being pushed by another student on a school bus and asserted negligence claims against the bus company and driver.  Plaintiff called numerous liability and damages witnesses to testify, including three expert witnesses.  LCBF was able to rebut plaintiff’s theories of liability and damages through cross-examination of witnesses and use of plaintiff’s social media.  Plaintiff sought monetary damages for pain and suffering, disability/impairment and loss of enjoyment of life, as well as $1.7 to $2.2 million in future economic losses.  The LCBF team was headed by Joseph Tomaino, Gerald Ford, and Elyse Schier.
