$49 million verdict for truck accident lawsuit in California
Posted on October 25th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
A truck accident victim out of California received a $49 million verdict last month for a traumatic brain injury he sustained as a result of the crash. At the time of the crash, the plaintiff was a college student and was driving on a highway when two tractor trailers crashed. Because of his severe brain injury, the plaintiff now requires 24-hour medical care. The $49 million verdict was based on past and future medical expenses, lost future earnings, and general damages. The drivers of the two trucks split 95% of the liability for the accident, and the jury apportioned 5% to the state of California.
