Bus Accident Because Of Smoke

Verdict: $10,257,880 | Sacramento County | Largent v. Frontier Town Lines & Detroit Diesel Corp.

The plaintiff here was a 19-year-old girl who was a passenger in her boyfriend’s car on a mountain highway when they collided with the rear of a slow moving bus that was obscured by diesel smoke. Plaintiff received a painful spinal cord injury, but fortunately walks and functions autonomously.

The Third District Court of Appeal upheld the entirety of the verdict against defendant’s argument that the general damage award was excessive.
