$65 Million Verdict In 2007 Motor Vehicle Crash Upheld By Appeals Court
Considered to be one of the largest in Polk County, Florida, a $65 million verdict for a woman injured in a 2007 traffic crash was upheld by the 2nd District Court of Appeals, reports The Ledger of Lakeland, Florida.
In 2007, the 19-year-old was driving her Dodge Neon when she was struck by a tractor-trailer at an intersection. An eyewitness to the accident testified the young college student had the green light.
Prior to the accident, she was majoring in psychology, could speak six languages, and was working as an aide for Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation. Following the accident, she was left with extensive injuries and is unable to care for herself requiring help in bathing, dressing, feeding and virtually all routine tasks.
The lawsuit was filed against Bynum Transport and the part-time truck driver who caused the crash.
