$5.64 Million Awarded to Girl Injured in Accident

Twenty-one-year old Teresa Gonzalez has been awarded $5.64 million in a personal injury lawsuit stemming from an accident that occurred in 2001 in California. Teresa was only 15 when the family van she was riding in was hit by a commercial truck. The Dresick Farms truck allegedly ran a stop sign, hit the Gonzalez family van, which rolled several times. Teresa was literally struck in the face by the impact.

As a result of the accident, Teresa has endured over 20 facial surgeries to repair the damage done. She suffered several fractures to her skull and face, as well as a mild traumatic brain injury. Dresick Farms fought liability, but admitted responsibility shortly before the case was to go to trial. The trial lasted one month and was held solely to determine the amount Teresa was to receive.

The $5.62 million is thought to be the largest personal injury verdict in the history of Imperial County, California.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in an accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
