Stamford – Crash Survivor Gets $15 Million Award
Last Friday, a Stamford jury awarded a man $15 million for injuries sustained in a 2014 trailer truck crash.
In that incident, 50-year-old Jorge Amparo was driving his car when he was rear-ended by a truck weighing 80,000 lbs., driven by 48-year-old Jose Ayala. Evans Delivery Company was the employer of Ayala and owner of the truck. Amparo sustained serious injuries to his neck and lower back and has rendered him disabled since the incident. The jury found Ayala and the company negligent in the accident.
This case typifies how Connecticut laws protect the safety of all motorists in the state. In cases where parties are found negligent in protecting people and property, they can be made liable for compensation claims filed by victims.
