A jury rejected a woman who claimed that she suffered spinal injuries in a four-car accident in Royal Palm Beach.
On Oct. 10, 2017, plaintiff Laura Ann Pickford, 55, an accountant, was driving on Southern Boulevard, near its intersection at Forest Hill Boulevard, in the village of Royal Palm Beach. She was driving immediately ahead of a pickup truck that was being driven by John Passeggiata, who was driving immediately ahead of a van that was being driven by Miguel Alvarez, who was driving immediately ahead of a minivan that was being driven by Jeremy Russell Booker. The four vehicles were involved in a multiple-impact accident in which Pickford’s vehicle was struck one or more times. Pickford claimed that she suffered injuries of her back and neck. Passeggiata’s insurer tendered its policy to Pickford.
