Decided on December 30, 2010
PRESENT: McKeon, P.J., Schoenfeld, Hunter, Jr., JJ
Defendants appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Bronx County (Mitchell J. Danziger, J.), dated June 3, 2010, which denied defendants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
Order (Mitchell J. Danziger, J.), dated June 3, 2010, affirmed, without costs.
In opposition to defendants' prima facie showing of entitlement to judgment as a matter of law dismissing the complaint, plaintiff raised a triable issue with respect to whether she sustained a serious injury within the meaning of Insurance Law § 5102(d). Plaintiff's doctors opined that plaintiff's symptoms, confirmed by documented objective tests, were caused by the subject motor vehicle accident, which aggravated plaintiff's pre-existing degenerative joint disease (see Hammett v Diaz-Frias, 49 AD3d 285 ; Regino v Pichardo, 24 Misc 3d 144[A], 2009 NY Slip Op 51789[U] ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE COURT.
