On Friday, a Dallas County jury awarded $87 million to a man who was partially paralyzed in a moving-truck accident with $87 million in his lawsuit against U-Haul.
Plaintiff’s lawyer Ted Lyon told reporters after the verdict that U-Haul had faulty emergency break and worn down gears. The Plaintiff rented a U-Haul to help his daughter move. When he got out of the truck, it started rolling backwards and knocked him down. Now the formerly active retiree cannot walk and requires around-the-clock care.
