Trial Results: January 2011

Bill Bloom tried a negligent supervision case in Camden County in February of this year. Plaintiff, a 6th grader at the time, claimed that while unsupervised in gym class, he attempted to leg press six hundred pounds. While attempting this, he felt a pop in his mid-back and a burning sensation down his legs. He was diagnosed him with a thoracic herniation, and he underwent a series of injections without improvement. Now 17 year old claimant alleged significant residual. Through a review of all medical records, we were able to show that the claimant suffers from a developmental condition unrelated to trauma, that there was a more than normal delay in treatment, and no eyewitness testimony. Plaintiff’s $650,000 demand withered away in trial and the matter settled for $25,000
