TT&H Attorney Jonathan Danko Wins Judgment on the Pleadings in Berks County Negligence Action
July 14, 2021
Attorney Jonathan Danko recently won judgment on the pleadings in a personal injury action involving two commercial vehicles. The Plaintiff, who was driving a commercial motor vehicle on a highway, claimed injuries following a collision between his vehicle and a tractor-trailer that entered the highway from an on-ramp. Jonathan’s client was not directly involved in the accident. His client owned the trailer attached to the merging commercial vehicle, but at the time of the accident, the trailer was being used by a different transportation company pursuant to a sublease agreement entered into prior to the accident.
Successfully obtaining judgment on the pleadings, Jonathan was able to convince the Court that his client could not be held liable to the Plaintiff, as it was a mere out-of-possession owner of the trailer.
