$1.3 Million - Ernest R
Boy Struck by Backing Truck
A 16-year-old boy was pinned against a wall by a slowly backing box truck. Ernest R. sustained a lacerated spleen which had to be removed. The driver was found to be 100% negligent and the jury awarded $1.2 Million of its award because the internist produced at trial explained that the spleen was critical to the body’s immune system and the loss of the spleen made this young man more susceptible to infectious diseases.
