Attorney Michele Mirman Addresses Jury During Summations in a Car Accident Trial

Posted By Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. || 29-Nov-2016

In a recent article titled, “SKETCHES OF COURT: Liability determined in 3-car rear-ender,” published by Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Attorney Michele Mirman is illustrated (by Alba Acevedo) addressing a jury during her summation in the trial Johnson-Simmons v. Hossain.

In this case, the plaintiff driver, who brought the lawsuit and was represented by Mrs. Mirman, was stopped at a red light at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and 15th Street. The plaintiff felt two impacts as her vehicle was rear-ended in a three-car crash. She was removed from the collision location on a gurney.

During a motion for summary judgment on behalf of the plaintiff, it was decided that the third car in the chain of vehicles was definitely at fault; the hard-fought question was, whether the driver of the second vehicle in the chain of cars had any percentage of liability.

Attorney Mirman showed that the second driver variously claimed that he stopped his taxi before he was hit by the third vehicle, that he was still moving when he was hit by the third vehicle, and that yet another story was that his brakes failed and he skid due to the wet pavement caused by the rainy weather.

The jury found in this case, that the second driver was indeed at fault for the collision, attributing 40% to him and 60% to the driver of the third vehicle.
