A Maryland jury awarded more than $11.8 million last month to a man whose car was rear-ended by a repeat drunk driver in August 2007. Michael W. Harris, the Plaintiff, developed a painful and debilitating nerve condition as a result of the crash that has largely confined him to a wheelchair. On the afternoon of August 28, 2007, Harris, then working as a landscaper, was stopped at an intersection when the drunk driver hit him from behind. The driver fled the scene, and when she was finally stopped, she failed two field sobriety tests and was booked for DUI. The woman had a long history of DUIs and was convicted of a separate DUI about a week after the Harris accident. Robert S. Weltchek and his son and law partner, Nolan, whose practice is in Philadelphia, tried this case and they did a very good job.
