Practice point: The jury is entitled to resolve in plaintiff's favor the conflict between the parties' expert witness testimony. While defendant's expert reached a different conclusion as to causation, the jury is free to accord more weight to the testimony of plaintiff's expert.
Student note: The jury's resolution of the conflicting expert testimony is not a basis for an appellate court's disturbing the verdict.
