- In Depth Look
Clifford Horwitz and Jay Luchsinger, both from the lead trial team at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates, represented the plaintiff.
The attorneys for the defendant argued that the man did not seek medical treatment until one week after his accident. They attempted to show he took photos of the injury before he received treatment to exaggerate the injury. In addition, the defendant argued that the defect in the gas station was minor. They attempted to show that the accident did not in fact cause the knee condition and that the knee condition was preexisting.
Horwitz and Luchsinger successfully rebutted these claims and the jury awarded the man with a $1,288,300 verdict.
