A jury awarded a husband and wife from India nearly $36.5 million for injuries sustained in a car accident with an 18-wheeler in 2010. On a visit to relatives in the U.S. in 2010, Jaishree and her husband Prakash Sheth were passengers in a vehicle that was hit by a tractor-trailer owned and operated by Schneider National Carriers, Inc. The truck improperly tried to pass the Sheth vehicle and hit the vehicle, causing it to spin out and smash into the center divider and another vehicle.
The collision caused Jaishree Sheth, 58, who was described as being “once-active,” severe injuries, including loss of normal use of her bladder and bowels. She will be reliant on a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Testimony revealed that her life will never be the same, and that she had a very active life. Jaishree’s medical costs are significant. She was initially a quadriplegic after the accident and will require more surgery. The Defendants say they plan to appeal. Los Angeles lawyers Brian Panish, Tom Schults and Ryan Casey, represented the Plaintiffs. They did a very good job in this case for their clients.
