Drunk Driving Lawsuit Pays Out $60 Million
Last week a Jury in Florida awarded $60 million in damages for a Drunk Driving Accident. Angela Crowe, the daughter of Joan Antonuccio was paralyzed after a 2003 car crash with a drunk driver. The driver was Isaac Steves, her boyfriend.
About $7 million in damages were awarded for the medical expenses of Crowe. Her mother, Antonuccio, said her daughter spent four months in a coma due to multiple traumatic brain injuries and now lives in an assisted-living facility.
As is so often is the case it is unlikely the entire amount will be recovered, but the jury’s decision will go a long way to help Joan Antonuccio and her daughter.
In 2003, Crowe and her boyfriend were on their way home after a night out in Naples, Florida. According to the lawsuit, a bartender provided drinks to Crowe. This is an issue as she was only 19 at the time and below the legal age.
