A Jefferson County jury found in favor of a Louisville woman who was sued after her vehicle rolled into a car in front of her at a stoplight. The man whom she ran into claimed the collision caused back pain which ultimately led to two disc surgeries. The defense, led by David Strite, successfully argued that the collision was too minor to cause the pain. Causation, it was argued, lay with a second, unrelated crash a month later, the patient’s degenerative disc problems, or both.
