A Florida woman who was severely injured in a car accident that occurred while the driver of the car she was a passenger in was texting, was recently awarded $4.3 million. The incident that led to this lawsuit allegedly occurred on December 20, 2010 while the plaintiff, a 26-year-old female, was a passenger in a car driven by her then-boyfriend. The defendant driver was accused of texting while driving, which resulting in him running a stop sign. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, after the driver had run the stop sign, he slid into a tractor-trailer. The female plaintiff sustained severe injuries as a result of the accident and is reportedly still impaired and permanently disabled, according to her attorney. The driver who caused the accident did not testify during the trial. After hearing the case, the Circuit Judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff and ordered the defendant to pay $4.3 million.
