CA Highway Patrol Officer Awarded $35M in Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit
A jury in California returned a $35 million verdict in a lawsuit filed by a police officer who was paralyzed in a car accident in 2007.
According to court documents, California Highway Patrol officer Anthony Pedeferri was left paralyzed after he was struck by a car on Highway 101 near Faria Beach, California. The vehicle was driven by Jeremy White, of Paso Robles, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2008 for his role in the accident.
Pedeferri filed a civil lawsuit against White and the owners of Bert’s Mega Mall in Covina, from where White was returning from at the time of the accident. Employees of Bert’s strapped two motorcycles into White’s truck prior to the accident.
A Ventura County jury returned a $35 million verdict after a judge threw out a defense motion for a new trial.
