placeholder image big

On June 2, 2014, Circuit Court for the City of Newport News upheld Mr. Waterman’s use of medical injury illustrations as demonstrative evidence in a car crash case set for jury trial during June 16-20, 2014. The lawsuit is Lamont v. Striggles, No. CL1301322V-04.

Nationwide, as underinsured automobile insurer and umbrella insurer, had moved in limine to exclude, claiming that the medical illustrations were gory, inflammatory, unrepresentative, misleading, and unfounded. But the Judge in Lamont found them reasonable and helpful.
