Jury Awards $17M for Head Injury Car Crash

Earlier this month a Vista Superior Court jury awarded $17.3 million to a man who suffered a facial and head injury in a crash in Escondido nearly three years ago. The jury found that the man, a doctoral student from San Marcos, should receive damages for his past and future medical expenses, past and future earnings, as well as his pain and mental anguish.

The victim, who suffered facial fractures and had a concussion as a result of the crash, is having short-term memory issues, jaw pain, and difficulty multi-tasking, his attorney said.

In November 2012, the driver of a commercial truck for NuCO2, a soda carbonation company based in Florida, was traveling south on Interstate 15 when it struck a number of cars that had come to a stop on the freeway near Via Rancho Parkway.

The plaintiff was in a Toyota Solara, the third of five vehicles in front of the truck. The force of the crash propelled his car into the back of an SUV.
