Firm Represents 76 Yr. Old Woman After Tractor Trailer Accident Leaves Her Brain Damaged
A 76-year-old woman who became severely brain damaged after a speeding truck made a negligent turn and collided with her vehicle, was awarded damages to the tune of $11.2 million. As a result of her brain damage, the plaintiff lost her ability to speak, walk or use her arms, but the jury accepted that despite this, she was fully aware of her plight and a prisoner in her own body. The jury found the truck driver 100% negligent, and damages were awarded to her for past and future pain and suffering and past and future medical expenses, and to her husband for past and future loss of services.
When a jury rules like this in a sexual harrasment case, they know that it was international, and they also know that the reason this manager was able to get away with this was that the company had to be looking the other way."
