A local woman was awarded $1,143,167 by a Pomona Superior Court jury on Thursday, February 13th, 2014 as compensation for injuries suffered in an automobile collision which occurred in June 2010 in Modesto, Ca.
Anastasia Harris was a front seat passenger in a GMC Yukon which was travelling north on the I-5 when the driver suddenly fell asleep, causing the vehicle to leave the roadway and impact a large oak tree. Ms. Harris was seatbelted with her children in the backseat. Airbags deployed, and the children suffered relatively minor injuries. Ms. Harris however suffered a severe fracture to her lower right leg and knee, resulting in 3 surgeries over the past four years with two knee replacements scheduled in the future.
According to Mike F. O'Brien, attorney for Ms. Harris, the jury awarded $221,167 for past and future medical expenses, wage loss and out of pocket costs, $12,500 for Bruce Harris, Ms. Harris' husband for loss of consortium, and $900,000 for past and future pain and suffering.
"It's a great award and we tip our hats to the jury for being brave enough to compensate Ms. Harris for what she has and will endure" said O'Brien.
Ms. Harris was raised in San Dimas attending San Dimas High. She has since moved with her husband and two children to a suburb outside Atlanta.
