The Recorder (9/24, Moser) reports, “A Santa Clara, Calif., jury awarded $49 million in damages Monday to a college student who was on his way to a camping trip when two trucks collided and one struck the car he was riding in, causing him traumatic brain injuries. It appears to be the biggest single-plaintiff personal injury jury verdict by far in at least the past 10 years in Santa Clara County Superior Court, according to a scan of VerdictSearch, a Recorder affiliate.” Randall Scarlett of San Francisco personal injury firm Scarlett Law Group, who represented the student, said, “The numbers are certainly significant, but I think they only represent the staggering cost of care to individuals sustaining traumatic brain injury.”
