Successful Motion for Summary Judgment

Yvrose Morin v Sandra Y. Torres, Index # 502272/19

Congratulations to Ivan J. Rodriguez for his successful summary judgment motion in this personal injury case. This case stems from a two car accident that occurred in Queens, New York.  The defendant claimed that this rear-end accident was caused when the plaintiff unexpectedly stopped short while driving causing the defendant to hit her in the rear.  We were able to demonstrate that the defendant was following too closely at the time of the accident and that she gave contradictory statements to the police immediately following the accident. The court determined that the plaintiff was not responsible for the accident and deemed that the accident was 100% the fault of the defendant.
