A friend of mine is going through a bitter divorce, it’s going to court. During the divorce he was in a very bad car wreck - broken back and lots of screws/plates in his back. Medical bills so far are $400k and he was out of work for 3 months. He was stopped at a stoplight and hit from behind by a car estimated to be doing 60 mph. He’s lucky to be alive and not paralyzed.
His wife is planning on telling the court his wreck was his own fault, I guess she says it’s a scheme to pay her less money. I’m pretty sure the judge will laugh that out of court. My question is does her lawyer have to make this ridiculous argument in court? Is his only option to make this argument or quit the case?
