Jury Awards $8.4 million for a Woman Injured in Crash

A crash victim has won a $8.4 million judgment from a Palm Beach County jury. The jury awarded the money after a five-day trial in Palm Beach County circuit court. Gina James was sitting in the rear seat of a car and was wearing her seat belt when it was struck from the rear by an uninsured driver. Ms. James was taken to the hospital by ambulance after the crash, and despite undergoing multiple surgeries on her neck and low back, she is now permanently disabled. Because of her physical condition, Ms. James has been unable to return to work and is now unemployed.
