Torts – negligence — emergency doctrine

Judith M. Emmrich appeals a judgment entered on a jury’s verdict finding Johnny Richardson not negligent in causing the auto accident that occurred when his vehicle collided with Emmrich’s vehicle. The dispositive issues we address on appeal are whether the trial court erroneously exercised its discretion by excluding the testimony of three adjustors employed by American Family Mutual Insurance Company, which insured Richardson’s vehicle, and whether the court erroneously exercised its discretion in giving Wis JI—Civil 1005A, concerning the emergency doctrine. We affirm. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
