New Jersey Supreme Court Allows Testimony Of Biomechanical Expert In Low Impact Crash Case.

In Hisenaj v. Kuehner, the Supreme Court found that expert testimony based on data from low impact crashes with human test subjects was properly admitted in a fender bender accident that resulted in a low jury verdict. The case was watched closely by both the plaintiff and defense bars and drew amicus curiae appearances from the Association of Trial Lawyers of America-New Jersey (ATLA) and the New Jersey Defense Association.
