Paralyzed Florida Truck Driver Awarded $14.6 Million

Published July 2, 2009 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

A Broward County, Florida Circuit Court judge has awarded $14.6 million to a 64-year-old truck driver crippled in a 2007 wreck, reports the Insurance Journal.

The truck driver was hauling sugar in 2007 in Palm Beach County when a driver ran a stop sign, causing him to swerve to avoid an accident which would have likely killed the other driver. The trucker’s 18-wheeler left the road and overturned, leaving him paralyzed.

National Casualty Co. denied the trucker’s claims. He then sued for uninsured-motorist benefits to help pay his medical bills.

The company is expected to appeal the judge’s award.
