Bonner Kiernan attorney James Dunphy obtained a defense verdict after a three day jury trial in Brockton District Court, Massachusetts. On the sales floor of a convenience store, the Plaintiff was struck by a baker’s cart pushed a store employee. The incident was captured by store surveillance cameras, which demonstrated that the impact between the cart and the Plaintiff’s left leg was minimal. Nonetheless, the Plaintiff claimed numerous permanent injuries to her left knee, left hip and left thigh, plus low back pain. The jury decided that the Plaintiff’s purported damages were not causally related to the alleged incident.
