Trial Report – Bend DUII Accident, Part III

The DUII-auto accident trial detailed in the last two posts took four full days.

When they jury returned, they awarded my client the following:

  • $8,350.10 for all past medical expenses.
  • No future medicals. This was the most surprising part of the award decision, since they related all priors up to last November.
  • No lost wages or impaired earning capacity. This was not really a surprise, given the economy and fact that my client still worked 100+ hours per week.
  • $10,000 non-economic damages. This, frankly, was also not surprising since my client spends all of his time at work.
  • $25,000 punitive damages.

The offer going into trial was $25,000, which my client received in punitive damages alone. It was a successful trial and another happy client.
