California Jury Awards Davis Jogger $18M Due To Brain Injuries Suffered From Roadway Negligence

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

A California jury returned $18 million jury verdict for a woman after she was hit by a car while jogging. The jury determined that the City of Sacramento was negligent in failing to place a crosswalk warning sign at the dangerous s-turn. Cathy Liu, a doctor at the University of California suffered major brain injuries as a result of the injury.

If you have been hurt in a car accident, contact an experienced Sacramento car accident lawyer immediately to investigate the incident and determine the different factors involved. In many cases, several different issues arise other than driver error.

Here, a jury determined that the City of Sacramento was at fault due to roadway negligence. Roadway negligence includes such things as a city's failure to install appropriate signage, improper lighting and excessive foliage or debris. When a city creates or allows dangerous roadway conditions to exist that lead to a car accident, the municipality may be held liable and required to compensate those injured.

Although the jury awarded Liu $18 million, a pretrial agreement capped the damages at $6 million.
