On January 18, 2010, Virginia Lawyers Weekly published Virginia’s Largest Verdicts of 2009.
Ranking #3 was the $8,000,000.00 personal injury jury verdict of Lo v. GRTC. While this was the third largest jury verdict in Virginia, it was the largest personal injury verdict.
Lo was represented by Allen & Allen’s Jason W. Konvicka and J. David Douthit.
Summary: Our client, a 34-year-old native of Hong Kong and a reference librarian at the State Library of Virginia, was run over by a GRTC bus in a crosswalk near the library in downtown Richmond. She suffered multiple injuries, the most severe of which were fractures to her sacroiliac joint and hip socket as a result of the bus accident.
She had substantial scarring and suffers from chronic pain, depression and post traumatic stress and anxiety disorders. The plaintiff has returned to work although she has difficulty walking long distances, lifting heavy items and using a ladder to retrieve or replace documents.
