A Pennsylvania jury has awarded a State Police trooper more than $1.4 million in damages for injuries he suffered when an intoxicated driver crashed into his cruiser. The officer was monitoring a construction zone at the time. The verdict came in a suit filed in 2010 by Sgt. Michael J. Chambers against James Mu Lin, the driver of a 2007 Toyota Camry that struck the vehicle, and Glasgow Inc., the Glenside firm that was involved in the construction project.
The crash occurred around 3:20 a.m. on May 31, 2008, on Route 422. Sgt. Chambers suffered “serious, painful injuries,” including herniated discs, a concussion and headaches. He still works for the state police in a supervisory capacity. The jury awarded damages for Sgt. Chambers’ past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering and loss of life’s pleasures.
