2 Attorney: Joseph O Connor, Esq XX/10-29 MOTOR VEHICLE INTOXICATED PLAINTIFF PASSES OUT IN HIS DRIVEWAY AND IS BACKED OVER BY A GUEST S CAR DEFENSE VERDICT James Childress v. F.A. Costagliola and Michele Costagliola 1195/00 3-day trial Verdict 6/6/02 Dutchess Supreme Judge: Bruce E. Tolbert Verdict: Defense verdict (5/1). Jury: 3 male, 3 female. Pltf. Atty: Joseph E. O Connor of Mainetti, Mainetti & O Connor, P.C., Kingston Deft. Atty: Richard B. Schoenberg of William A. Medican, Middletown Facts: The accident occurred on 7/4/98 at 3:30 AM. Plaintiff, age 19 at the time, had been drinking 1-liter bottles of Pepsi and rum with a friend since 6:30 PM the previous evening. Plaintiff was unsure how many bottles he had consumed. At 8 PM, he and his friend drove to a fireworks show, and afterwards drove to a fast food restaurant where each ate two hamburgers. Plaintiff denied drinking at the fireworks show or at the restaurant. They then drove to a party where plaintiff drank two 16-oz cups of beer. They returned to plaintiff s house at about 3 AM. Plaintiff testified that after his friend drove away, he fell in his driveway and passed out. Defendant was dating plaintiff s older sister, and was in plaintiff s house when plaintiff came home. Defendant testified that plaintiff was loud and sounded drunk, and that after a short time he heard a vehicle drive off, and as plaintiff did not come in the house, assumed that he had driven away. At about 3:30 AM, defendant left plaintiff s house. Plaintiff s driveway, approximately 30 feet long, was unlit, had several sharp turns, and was surrounded by debris. Defendant testified that he backed away from the house and was attempting to turn around when he felt his tire hit something and heard moaning under the car. When defendant saw plaintiff s legs under the car, he ran back into the house, told his girlfriend to call for help, and then ran back outside and jacked his car off plaintiff. Emergency crews arrived minutes later, and used hydraulic jacks to raise the entire car. Evidence indicated that plaintiff was so violent when the crews removed the car that police had to tackle him, handcuff him, and shackle him to a backboard so he could be airlifted to a hospital for examination. A blood alcohol test at 5 AM showed his alcohol level to be.289. Injuries: Plaintiff was treated for minor abrasions and released. He was out of work for 3 days. Plaintiff claimed that one of his abrasions did not heal properly, resulting in a keloid scar on the back of his upper right arm. He also claimed that he suffered facial scarring and a head deformity, and that the scar affects his self esteem. Defendant argued that the head deformity is not in the hospital record. No offer; demand: $15,000. Carrier: Allstate.

Hughes counsel contended that the incident was a result of a long-standing, defective, unsafe condition that was ignored. He submitted photographs of the stairs, and he claimed that the photographs confirmed that the stairway s top step was crumbling. Defense counsel contended that the steps were reasonably safe, though he also contended that New Paltz Properties was not aware of any defect that may have caused Hughes fall. He claimed that the stairway was not the subject of any prior complaints or incidents. Defense counsel also contended that Hughes ambulation was impaired prior to the incident, but that Hughes neglected to use the stairway s handrail. He argued that the incident was a product of Hughes failure to exercise due care.

6 XXVII/05-27 MOTOR VEHICLE No-Fault Case Rear-ender Multiple Vehicle Civil Practice Summary Judgment Car crash caused spinal injuries, atrophy, plaintiff alleged Verdict $1,400,000 Actual $300,000 Case Steven A. Blackmon v. Shelby M. Fabiano and Dean J. Fabiano, No. 506/08 Judge Richard M. Platkin Date 6/11/2009 Defense Attorney(s) Paul A. Hurley, Boeggeman, George & Corde, P.C., Albany, NY Facts & Allegations On Oct. 8, 2007, plaintiff Steven Blackmon, 36, a dance instructor, was driving on Route 9W, in Saugerties. His vehicle s rear end was struck by a trailing vehicle that was being driven by Dean Fabiano. Blackmon claimed that he sustained an injury of his neck. Blackmon sued Fabiano and the owner of Fabiano s vehicle, Shelby Fabiano. Blackmon alleged that Dean Fabiano was negligent in the operation of his vehicle. Blackmon further alleged that Shelby Fabiano was vicariously liable for Dean Fabiano s actions. Blackmon claimed that the collision occurred while he was stopped, waiting to execute a left turn onto the premises of a gasoline station. He contended that Dean Fabiano was maintaining a speed of 30 to 40 mph. Fabiano contended that Blackmon did not signal his turn and that Blackmon s vehicle s brake lights were not illuminated. He claimed that when he realized that his vehicle was nearing Blackmon's vehicle, he took evasive actions, but that he was not able to avoid the collision. Blackmon s counsel moved for summary judgment of liability, and the motion was granted. The trial addressed damages. Injuries/Damages decreased range of motion; diskectomy; fusion, cervical; herniated disc at C5-6; herniated disc at C6-7; herniated disc at C7-T1; physical therapy; radiculopathy Blackmon claimed that he sustained herniations of his C5-6, C6-7 and C7-T1 intervertebral discs. He also claimed that he suffered radiculopathy that stemmed from his spine s C7 level. He initially underwent physical therapy, but his injuries ultimately necessitated surgery that included a diskectomy, which is the excision of a disc, and fusion of the associated area of his spine. The surgery was followed by additional physical therapy. Blackmon contended that he suffers residual atrophy of his entire upper extremity. He also contended that he suffers residual pain and a residual reduction of his neck s range of motion. He acknowledged that he was able to resume work, but he claimed that he worked merely three hours a week for about eight months. He also claimed that he can no longer instruct dance, though he can choreograph dance routines. Blackmon acknowledged that he is able to jog and exercise, but he contended that his injuries prevent his resumption of the weight-lifting exercise that he previously enjoyed. Blackmon sought recovery of $200,000 for his past pain and suffering and an unspecified amount for his future pain and suffering. Defense counsel contended that Blackmon s injuries stemmed from degenerative conditions that antedated the accident. He claimed that an MRI scan, performed several weeks after the accident, revealed degenerative changes of the cervical region of Blackmon s spine. He also claimed that radicular symptoms were not found during Blackmon s first post-accident medical examination. As such, he argued that there was no objective evidence of an acute, trauma-induced herniation. The defense s expert neurologist agreed that Blackmon's complaints were related to a degenerative disc disease, and he opined that the accident produced nothing more than a mild sprain of Blackmon s neck. Thus, defense counsel contended that Blackmon did not sustain a serious injury, as defined by the no-fault law, Insurance Law 5102(d). During the trial, the parties negotiated a $300,000/$60,000 high/low agreement. Result The jury found that Blackmon sustained a serious injury. It determined that Blackmon s damages totaled $1.4 million, but Blackmon s recovery was reduced to the high/low agreement s $300,000 maximum amount.

He contended that the icy roof was unsafe, and he claimed that he should have been provided a scaffold and/or a harness. Hadden's counsel claimed that the incident stemmed from an elevation-related hazard, as defined by Labor Law 240(1), and that Hadden was not provided the proper, safe equipment that is a requirement of the statute. Defense counsel contended that Labor Law 240(1) is not applicable to incidents that occur during routine maintenance or work that does not involve a significant alteration of a building, and he contended that Hadden was injured during a task that was a matter of routine maintenance. Injuries/Damages abscess; chiropractic; debridement; decreased range of motion; fusion, lumbar; herniated disc at L5-S1; infection; nerve impingement; physical therapy; radiculopathy Hadden initially returned to his home, but he was later transported to a hospital, where he underwent minor treatment.

He initially underwent about six months of conservative treatment that included chiropractic manipulation and physical therapy, but he contended that the treatment did not resolve his pain. He subsequently underwent fusion of his spine's L5- S1 level, but the fusion failed. Hadden also developed an abscess and infection of his surgical wound, necessitating the debridement of tissue. Hadden claimed that he suffers residual pain and a residual reduction of his back's range of motion. He contended that he cannot work, exercise or perform any physically demanding activities. He also contended that he requires the use of a cane. He claimed that he will soon undergo a second fusion of the problematic area of his spine, and he contended that the procedure will be followed by a course of physical therapy. Hadden sought recovery of past and future medical expenses, past and future lost earnings, and damages for past and future pain and suffering. Result Each side moved for summary judgment of liability. During pendency of the motions, the parties negotiated a settlement. Boxberger's insurer agreed to pay $3.35 million.

McCarthy, Levene Gouldin & Thompson, LLP, Binghamton, NY Facts & Allegations On Aug. 9, 2011, plaintiff Cindy Beaton, 50, a resort's manager, was driving on Route 9W, in the hamlet of Ulster Park.

She further alleged that Gas Land Trucking was vicariously liable for Kraft's actions. Beaton claimed that Kraft initiated the collision while attempting to pass the left side of her vehicle. She contended that his rig strayed into the lane that her vehicle occupied. Beaton's counsel presented a police officer who responded to the accident. The officer contended that Kraft acknowledged having caused the collision. Kraft contended that he did not see Beaton's vehicle during any moment prior to the accident. He suggested that she may have merged onto Route 9W from a feeder ramp and initiated contact with his rig. Injuries/Damages bone graft; discectomy; epidural injections; fusion, cervical; herniated disc at C5-6; physical therapy After one day had passed, Beaton presented to her primary doctor. She underwent an examination and was referred to an orthopedist. Beaton ultimately claimed that she sustained a herniation of her C5-6 intervertebral disc. She initially underwent conservative treatment that included physical therapy and the administration of four epidural injections of steroidbased painkillers, but she claimed that the treatment did not resolve her pain. She ultimately underwent surgery that included discectomies, which involved partial excision of her C4-5, C5-6 and C6-7 discs; fusion of the corresponding levels of her spine; and the grafting of stabilizing bony matter. The surgery was followed by an additional course of physical therapy. Beaton claimed that she could not work during the months that followed her surgery. She contended that she suffers residual pain and limitations that prevent her performance of strenuous activities, such as gardening. She also contended that her pain occasionally hinders her ability to sleep. Beaton sought recovery of at least $450,000 for past pain and suffering and more than $450,000 for future pain and suffering. Defense counsel contended that Beaton's herniation was a degenerative condition that predated the accident. He claimed that an MRI scan indicated that Beaton suffered significant degeneration of discs. Result The jury found that the defendants were liable for the accident. It determined that Beaton's damages totaled $2 million.
