FL: $8M Drunk Driving Auto Accident Verdict

In Volusia County, Florida, a jury has awarded $8 million to a woman hit by a drunk driver.  The plaintiff was represented by Morgan & Morgan.  From the press release:

As a result of the crash, Tamara Roundtree sustained extensive injuries, including several disc herniations, requiring her to undergo surgical procedures. She has had to endure a lumbar decompression procedure, after exhausting other more conservative medical measures. She is also in need of a cervical surgical procedure. Ultimately, the total past medical bills at the time of trial were about $188,000.

Large verdicts are often altered on appeal, so it will be interesting to see if this one stands.
