Our client, a 28-year-old female accountant, sustained a brain injury when she was struck while crossing in a crosswalk. The driver claimed that she ran out between parked cars. Our client did not recall the accident, but remembered standing on the corner waiting for the walk light. She struck her head on the ground and was later diagnosed with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). She had recently been hired to work at a large accounting firm, and tried for two years to work, but was unable to do so due to concentration and memory problems. She was later diagnosed with traumatically induced epilepsy and is on social security disability. The jury found the van driver and his employer responsible and awarded a total of $7.4 million for past and future pain and suffering and economic losses.
