Roosevelt Jean successfully convinced a jury that a pedestrian’s  injuries caused  by a motor vehicle were not permanent as defined by New Jersey’s Limitation on Law Suit Threshold.  Plaintiff alleged cervical disc trauma, right shoulder tendon tear and dislocation, right knee meniscus tear; and multiple level lumbar disc bulges all confirmed by MRI testing.  Although Plaintiff’s MRI films confirmed abnormalities, and Plaintiff was treated with multiple nerve block injections,  Mr. Jean persuaded the jury that objective testing performed by Plaintiff’s treating physician were inconsistent with a permanent injury.  Accordingly, a verdict of No Cause of Action was entered in favor of the Defendant.  The case was tried in a trial in Passaic County before Hon. Thomas A. LaConte.
