NEW ORLEANS, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates Lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that a jury recently awarded a $51.5 million judgment in a lawsuit filed by the family of a New Orleans woman who was severely injured by a tractor-trailer and left with a brain injury.
Connie Jones Marable was injured in 2012 in New Orleans East in a parking lot when "her husband's 2007 Freightliner truck moved despite having its emergency brake on," according to the lawsuit. News sources state that the woman attempted to help her husband stop the vehicle when it started moving forward despite having the emergency brake on, and she was then "pinned" under its wheels and dragged for some time. The accident left her with physical injuries and a severe brain injury, and in a "minimally conscious state under 24-7 nursing care."
The lawsuit was filed by her two adult children, and the jury found Daimler Trucks to be 90% at fault in the incident (Freightliner Trucks is a division of Daimler Trucks North America LLC).
