Truck Accident Results in $24.3 Million Verdict for Injured Child
Posted on Mar 09, 2010
An Oregon girl whose truck driver father ran her over with his tractor trailer received $24.3 million in damages from a jury. The trucking company that hired the father, Freeway Transport Inc., was liable for the girl's injuries.
The girl suffered severe injuries to her entire lower body that will require many future surgeries. Along with the prospect of hip replacement and other procedures, the injuries also will "affect her private functions" for the rest of her life.
