OCEANSIDE, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan Harris of San Diego law firm Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, and his co-counsel Robert Hamparyan, were recently awarded a $13.3 million dollar jury verdict in an auto accident case.
Mr. Harris's client, who was just 19 years old at the time of the accident, was struck head-on by a negligent driver on a two lane rural highway in Farmersville, California. The collision, which occurred in October 2007, resulted in severe injuries to the client.
The insurance company for the negligent driver denied any responsibility for causing the car accident because the driver had been rear-ended by another vehicle before colliding with Mr. Harris' client. As a result, the insurance company refused to offer any money to settle the case.
During his investigation of the case, Mr. Harris obtained the black box data recorder from the driver's Chevy Silverado. The data recorder demonstrated the negligent driver had been braking aggressively just before the accident. This was a key piece of evidence the jury relied upon in awarding a verdict in the Plaintiff's favor.
The case was tried in the California Superior Court in Visalia, California. The trial lasted 6 weeks, with 3 days of jury deliberation. The jury reached its verdict on December 23, 2009, awarding Mr. Harris's client a verdict of 13.3 million dollars. When asked about the case Mr. Harris responded, "Representing this client has forever changed my life, and if there ever was a young lady who needed to be taken care of through our civil justice system it is her."
