$1.1 Million verdict in rear-end collision
Ms. Tran was rear-ended by a city sweeper truck while stopped at a traffic signal. The back of her car was crushed and she was pushed into the car in front of her. At the scene she was stunned and non-responsive. This lapse of consciousness would fuel concerns that she had suffered a mild brain injury and examinations would support those concerns. She also suffered from permanent vision loss and disc injuries in her spine. Ms. Tran was represented by attorneys Chris Wood and Larry Phan in a Sacramento courtroom. Despite over 50 hours of clandestine video being collected by the defense legal team, a jury weighed the testimony and physical evidence and awarded Ms. Tran more than $1 million.
