Couple wins $14.5 million in lawsuit over 2004 uninsured motorist crash on Interstate 95
A former chiropractor and his wife have won a $14.5 million jury verdict in a lawsuit filed over a 2004 car crash that involved a motorist with no insurance.
Attorney Crane Johnstone says a Miami-Dade jury sided with David and Carrie Zucker, who claimed the insurance company Geico owed them because the others involved either had no insurance or were under insured.
Johstone says the Zuckers’ policy had benefits that under Florida law require auto insurance carriers like Geico to pay damages in such cases. The company had rejected their claim.
The crash happened on Interstate 95 in Miami after motorist Miguel Gonzalez collided with an 18-wheel oil tank truck and careened into the path of the Zuckers’ car. David Zucker suffered spinal and other injuries.
Geico could appeal.
