In this auto negligence case, a Louisville man let off his clutch at a stoplight, colliding with the car in front of him. The passenger of that car suffered a radiating back injury and she ultimately had to undergo a diskectomy. Complications ensued, and she was rendered blind in one eye. The Plaintiff’s chain of liability blamed the defendant’s inattention to the road for her troubles. O’Bryan, Brown and Toner successfully convinced the Jefferson County jury that the crash was really nothing more than a tap and that such a collision was too minor to cause the disk injury blamed on it.
