September 04, 2018
On August 30, 2018, following a one-day jury trial in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Joe Cardile won a defense verdict in connection with a phantom vehicle case. Mr. Cardile represented an insurance company, the UM/UIM carrier for a vehicle in which both Plaintiffs were occupants. The Plaintiffs alleged that their vehicle was struck from behind by a truck driven by a Co-Defendant. It was further alleged that prior to the collision, a phantom vehicle cut the Plaintiffs off and caused the Plaintiff driver to brake suddenly, resulting in injuries due to the rear-end impact from the Co-Defendant’s vehicle. At trial, Mr. Cardile successfully argued that the Plaintiffs had failed to establish that the alleged phantom vehicle was negligent. A Baltimore City Jury returned a verdict that the phantom vehicle was not negligent, and that the vehicle that rear-ended the Plaintiffs was negligent. As a result, the insurance company’s UM/UIM policy did not apply.
