Summary of Facts:
Sherri Loving, an adult woman, reportedly suffered an aggravation of pre-existing lumbar spinal stenosis resulting in lower back pain as a result of an automobile collision in which her vehicle, which was stopped on a westbound public roadway, was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by defendant Ryan Gubler and owned by defendant David Gubler. The plaintiff contended the defendants were negligent in the operation and ownership of the vehicle and alleged defendant David Gubler was liable pursuant to Nev. Rev. Stat. Sec. 41.440. The defendants denied liability and disputed the plaintiff's injuries.
