After a night of gambling in Biloxi, Mr. Daniel, on his way home to Pensacola, crossed the center line and hit V.C.’s vehicle head-on. After that collision, while V.C. was attempting to exit his vehicle, he was rear-ended by a truck driven by an employee of Sunbelt Optics Inc. V.C.’s injuries were catastrophic and he could no longer provide for his family. One week before trial, we settled with sunbelt Optics Inc for $2.4 million. After a jury trial, a verdict was rendered against Mr. Daniel on V.C.’s behalf for over $33 million.
