Truck v. auto accident tried in Chatsworth, CA in 2014. PARRIS represented an individual who was struck from behind by a big rig causing his vehicle to roll 3 times. PARRIS claimed as a result of the collision our client sustained injuries to his back and neck necessitating potential spine surgery as well as suffering from a traumatic brain injury.
The defense offered $300k for full settlement. Even though the client continued to work as a warehouse driver PARRIS contended that he was substantially limited and restricted in his work responsibilities and his personal lifestyle. The settlement offer was rejected and we proceeded to trial. After a 2 week trial the jury returned with a verdict of $7.4 million which was paid in full by the defense.
