Credible testimony on the part of a car accident victim’s longtime treating physician helped clinch the deal for $126,223 in a virtual bench trial.

While the defense argued during the two-day trial that Pennsylvania resident Alexsandra Motroni had neck pain before her April 2017 Connecticut car accident and that she spent too much on medical treatments, her physician, Dr. Barry Follweiler, made a compelling witness, according to plaintiff’s counsel Elisabeth Swanson of Goff Law Group in West Hartford.
