$8 Million Awarded In Transit Bus Personal Injury Suit
A 34-year-old research librarian has been awarded $8 million by a Richmond, Virginia jury for injuries she suffered when struck by a GRTC Transit System bus in 2007, reports the Richmond Times-Herald.
The librarian suffered spinal and shoulder damage as well as hip and pelvis fractures when she was struck by the bus which made a right hand turn as she was crossing the street beside the Library of Virginia. She will probably need multiple hip replacement surgeries before she turns 50-years-old.
The bus company originally offered a $1.8 million settlement. The $8 million awarded was the full amount requested in the case.
