$49 Million Awarded In California Personal Injury Lawsuit
One of the country’s largest personal injury verdicts was awarded to a former college student who is permanently brain damaged after a 2007 automobile accident, reports the Mercury News. The Santa Clara jury found two truckers and state transportation officials at fault in the accident.
On May 3, 2007, the victim was in the back seat of a car heading for a camping trip with three other men when two trucks collided, sending one into the rear of the men’s car. The accident left the 23-year-old college student with permanent brain damage requiring full-time care at a neurological treatment center.
Out of court settlements will bring the total damages to more than $60 million, which will be used for the man’s care and rehabilitation.
