Maryland Resident Receives $11.8 Million Verdict in Drunk Driving Case

Michael W. Harris has been awarded $11.8 million by a Maryland jury due to his complications after being rear-ended by a repeat drunk driving offender.  Mr. Harris developed a painful and devastating nerve condition after being struck by the drunk driver, which has caused him to spend most of his life in a wheelchair.

The drunk driver struck Mr. Harris in 2007, as he sat at an intersection waiting for the traffic light.  The driver then fled the scene but was soon found by police officials who administered two sobriety tests, which the driver failed.  The drunk driver was charged with a DUI and has a record of previous DUI’s.
