Jovita, an elderly office worker, was struck by a van moments after she left her office at the close of business. She was knocked unconscious and removed to the hospital by ambulance. All subsequent testing was negative, but her children claimed that she was slower, more absent-minded, easily distracted, and at times sometimes confused after the accident. The defendants claimed she had no serious injuries from this accident. At trial, our expert neurologist said that despite the lack of objective proof, if the family members who observe her daily say she is consistently different, slower and more confused with impaired memory, then it is obvious that she sustained a type of brain damage. A short time later, the jury returned a verdict for $1 million.
