$49 million Jury Award to Victim of 18-Wheeler Truck Collision

A California jury this week awarded $49 million in damages to a man who was catastrophically injured in a trucking accident in California. The damages were awarded against the 2 truckers, whose big rigs collided when one truck crossed the center line and the other truck driver was talking on his cell phone, and the State of California.

As a Georgia trucking accident lawyer, I have seen all too often where tragic accidents such as this one rob an individual of a promising future. This is a young man who, 2 and 1/2 years ago, was about to finish college and start medical school. Now he is living in a full time neurological treatment center because of his severe brain injuries and head trauma.
