The case went to verdict on September 5, 2018 wherein the plaintiff’s asked the jury for $14.25 million on behalf of six heirs to the decedent. The decedent plaintiff was a 44 year-old ivy league educated physician from Yale and Brown. He was killed in a car accident where plaintiffs alleged that the defendants’ truck failed to yield while making a left hand turn, in turn causing the collision and explosion of plaintiff’s motorcycle which led to his death. After an 11-day trial, the jury came back with a $1.3 million verdict; even less than the defendants’ last indicated offer at mediation.
