|Summary:||Matthew Falcone, a 53-year-old construction worker, was awarded $40.8 million after he was "left brain damaged and partially paralyzed after being struck by one of [Verizon's] trucks," according to a New York Post article. Mr. Thomas Moore won the award on behalf of Mr. Falcone, who spent weeks in a coma after the incident. |
The vehicle, noted the article, "was going 50 mph in a 30-mph zone." Verizon claimed that Mr. Falcone had "only been hit by the vehicle's side-view mirror." But "photos of the truck's shattered windshield and headlights... indicated the collision was much more severe," Mr. Moore was quoted saying.
