A jury awarded $40 million in damages to a Brooklyn construction worker, Matthew Falcone, who was left severely disabled after a Verizon truck struck him near his home four years ago. The truck was traveling 50 miles an hour. The award will help the Plaintiff, who suffered brain damage and is partially paralyzed, leave a Staten Island nursing home and move in with his sister. After the crash, the Plaintiff was in a coma and not expected to survive. He spent weeks in the hospital. Verizon is considering whether to appeal the verdict.
