Joseph Muscarella Secures Defense Verdict

On May 5, 2022, Joseph Muscarella secured a defense verdict on behalf of our client, a Car Dealership/Auto Repair Shop, in Rockland County Supreme Court before the Honorable Thomas Zugibe. Plaintiff’s counsel alleged that the client’s mechanics negligently repaired the plaintiff’s vehicle, resulting in the plaintiff’s automobile accident on a major highway. At trial, plaintiff called two experts who both alleged that the client negligently repaired a power steering gearbox in the plaintiff’s vehicle, resulting in the plaintiff’s complete loss of steering, and causing the plaintiff’s accident. While Mr. Muscarella did not call an expert, he was able to establish through cross-examination of plaintiff’s experts that there was no evidence that the repair of the steering gear box on the plaintiff’s vehicle was the proximate cause of the plaintiff’s accident.
