Juanita Marquez, 90, was a passenger in her daughter’s pickup truck. While the pickup truck was stopped in traffic, an SUV driven by a teenager, Aaron Dominguez, rear-ended the Marquez vehicle. The crash caused the Marquez vehicle to hit another vehicle in front of it.
Marquez suffered a cervical strain and a right shin injury, as well as hip and arm pain. She now requires a cane for walking and has become generally less independent than she was before this crash.
Marquez sued Dominguez, alleging negligent operation of his SUV. She did not claim past medical expenses. Dominguez admitted he had been using his cell phone at the time of the collision and conceded liability during the trial.
The jury signed a verdict in the amount of $200,000.
The attorneys successfully handling this case were Bill Weinacht and Alba Alvarez.
