Retiree cannot sue for car accident injuries, despite two surgeries

Judges Christopher Murray, Jane Markey and Stephen Borello, constituting a panel of the Court of Appeals, handed down several opinions this week, all of which managed to result in victories for an insurance company.  Among them:  the dismissal of Gunnard Kyllonen's injury case against William Luepnitz.  Luepnitz had caused a car accident in which Kyllonen suffered a shoulder injury.  Kyllonen endured two surgeries on the shoulder (one to insert a screw and another to remove it) and pain, limitation of work and recreational activities, and some continuing disability.  The judges held that his injury was not a "serious impairment."
