Eric Bernhardt Secures Summary Judgment in Erie County Motor Vehicle Case Arguing No Proximate Cause

Representing the driver involved in a single-vehicle accident, Eric S. Bernhardt, Esq., secured dismissal of claims that her negligence with regard to the first accident proximately caused the plaintiff’s traumatic injuries in a third, successive accident where the plaintiff was struck by a drunk driver approximately 20 minutes after the first accident occurred. The Court agreed that the first accident was not, as a matter of law, a proximate cause of the subsequent accident and dismissed all claims against our driver.
