The L.A. Times reports that jurors awarded a man and his wife $39 million as the result of a truck accident that resulted in paralyzing injuries.

The man – a C.H.P. Officer – had pulled over a motorist on U.S. Highway 101 north of Ventura. While the C.H.P. Officer was conducting the stop, a truck crashed into them, killing the motorist and leaving the CHP Officer a paraplegic.

If you’ve been injured in any roadway accident, it’s critical to contact an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer at once.

Here, the jury awarded the parents of the man who was killed $10.2 million in addition to the $39 million for the officer and his wife. The truck driver pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and transporting marijuana. Often several factors are at play when a trucking accident occurs, including driver error and road conditions. Other times the company that hired a negligent driver may be found at fault in addition to the driver. An experienced attorney can investigate the accident and determine all possible avenues of recovery.
