This is one of my many Florida child injury settlements. Below are a couple of Florida car accident settlements that are not mine.
Actual Case (not my case): $16.5 Million for pain and suffering was affirmed (approved) by the 4th District Court of Appeal (Broward and Palm Beach County) for a 20 year old man who was rendered paraplegic after he was hit by a motor vehicle while he was on a motorcycle.
$11.5 Million of the award was for future pain and suffering. $5 Million was for past pain and suffering. The accident was in 2006. The total verdict was for 18,888,875 and it was in 2012. The case is Vanzyl vs. Fain and Kincaid.
My thoughts: I assume that the Plaintiff argued that he is going to live until age 78 or so, which would be another 58 years. That means that the 4th district appeals court approved the jury’s award of approximately $198,275 a year for future pain and suffering. The court also approved the award of roughly a $1 Million a year for past pain and suffering.
Actual case (not mine): $300,000 verdict for pain and suffering alone for a 46-year-old woman who had surgery in her lower back after she was hit by a Walgreen’s tractor trailer truck in Palm Beach County, Florida. She claimed a herniated disc and an annular tear after she was hit (t-boned) by a Walgreen’s truck.
