According to the Florida Times-Union, a Florida jury recently awarded a woman 13 million dollars ($13,000,000.00) as a result of injuries suffered in a 2005 car accident with a logging truck.Â On a 2005 morning just before dawn, the logging truck driver had just made a U-turn on a Florida highway when the victimâ€™s car crashed into the broad side of the truck and was crushed underneath the logs.Â The victim, a passenger in the car, ended up in a coma for over a month and is still recovering from the crash.Â She suffered short-term memory loss and requires 24-hour supervision.Â The jury determined the truck driver and owner were negligent because the truck was dimly lit at the time of the accident.Â The damages are to cover the victimâ€™s medical expenses and pain and suffering.
