Injuries: Wrongful Death
Jury Verdict: $1,250,000

Our client, a 78 year old woman, was killed when a tractor trailer ran a red light at Hopkins and Warwick Roads in Richmond and struck an automobile in which the deceased was a passenger. She was survived by only one adult daughter who lived in Alabama. Several witnesses testified to the very close relationship between mother and daughter and the significance of the daughter’s loss.
