In the Alameda County Superior Court, a virtual jury awarded a $1.37 million verdict to a woman who was considerably injured because of a college student’s negligence.
Grace DeWitt, a student at California Polytechnic State University, was walking with friends when she was picked up by a fellow student and began running. However, while carrying her, she tripped, fell and dropped Grace. The plaintiff was crushed by the defendant who fell on top of her.
Grace has been treated for her injuries for over four years, including several shoulder surgeries and much rehabilitation.
