The Mottley Law Firm is pleased to announce that a Roanoke federal court jury has awarded $3.5 million to one of the firm's clients, who was injured in a horrific 2019 crash on Interstate 81 near Lexington, Virginia. The crash, which occurred on December 28, 2019, caused the client's car to go airborne, flipping multiple times, after a tractor trailer made an unsafe lane change and clipped the rear of the car.
The firm's client suffered a mild traumatic brain injury. Since the crash, the client has experienced chronic headaches and vision difficulties. These problems disrupted and ultimately ended the client's career as a pediatric nurse.
The Roanoke federal court jury heard 4 days of medical evidence before deciding to award the client $3.5 million in compensatory damages for her injuries. Firm founder Kevin Mottley said, "this jury was excellent. They paid close attention to the medical evidence, which was overwhelming. This crash changed her life forever and for the worse. The jury did her justice." The trial judge was U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Cullen.
