On Monday, August 6, 2012, a car accident victim, who was represented by Mark S. Roman and Morgan L. Gaynor of Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers, was rear-ended by an employee of Mercedes-Benz in Melbourne. Immediately after the collision, healthcare professionals rendered the plaintiff unconscious and stated that she suffered the following injuries:
- Multiple fractures to her arm
- Multiple fractures to her ribs
- Damage to her shoulder
- Damages to her brain
The plaintiff was immediately taken to Raulerson Hospital and obtained advanced life support for the duration of the commute.
During the plaintiff’s trial, the defense opposed causation, damages, and liability, stating that the plaintiff was at fault and did not actually suffer a TBI. The defense attempted to prove that the plaintiff continued to live a normal, healthy life following the accident by obtaining information from social media posts and surveillance footage.
However, Attorney Roman and Attorney Gaynor remained persistent in their pursuit of justice and maximum monetary compensation on behalf of the client. Using a quantitative electroencephalogram, a SPECT scan, a PET scan, and an MRI scan, physicians confirmed that the plaintiff suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of the accident. Due to her TBI, the plaintiff now suffers various cognitive difficulties, severe pain caused by headaches, and constant neck pains that contribute to constant headaches. According to the plaintiff’s examining physician, the plaintiff is not expected to return to normal and may face over $1 million in future medical expenses.
On March 8, 2016, the jury returned the verdict of $4,356,000.00, which consisted of the following:
- $155,401.98 for past medical bills
- $1,200,598.02 for future medical bills
- $1,000,000.00 for physical pain and emotional distresses
- $2,000,000.00 for future physical pain and emotional distresses
