Vaughn Obtains Dismissal

On February 2, 2016, Doug Vaughn obtained an involuntary dismissal for a client sued in federal court on a demand of $225,000.00.   Mr. Vaughn convinced the court that the plaintiff had failed to offer sufficient proof to allow his  negligence claim to be considered because the element of causation linking the alleged need for medical care and treatment to the accident in question was not established.  The plaintiff presented evidence from a life care planner and a pain management physician in the trial but each admitted on cross examination that they held no opinions on causation.
