Bedon v. Cheung – $88,000
On August 14, 2014, Ms. Bedon, 29 years of age and 26 weeks pregnant, was securing her four year-old son into the rear right passenger seat of her Chevy Tahoe. Suddenly and without warning, the Defendant backed out of his parking space, striking the door of Ms. Bedon’s vehicle, pinning and compressing her between her vehicle frame and her child’s car seat. She sustained neck pain, abdominal pain, and back pain. Defendant denied fault. After 7 days in trial, a jury found that the Defendant was 100% liable for the incident and awarded Ms. Bedon $80k in damages.
