Jury awarded $5.6 million to victim of a pedestrian car accident with traumatic brain injury

Chrysler asked a Macomb County judge to reconsider her denial of a new trial that maintained a $5.6 million verdict to a Bruce Township man who suffered serious personal injuries in a pedestrian car accident. But Circuit Judge Mary Chrzanowski ruled against Chrysler’s claims the jury was given faulty instructions following the August 2008 trial.

In Broeren v. Bates, the plaintiff was run over by his friend’s pickup truck and hurled head-first into a log cabin while they were on a hunting trip.  The friend, a Chrysler employee, was driving a Chrysler test pickup truck. Therefore, Chrysler was responsible for paying the verdict.

Here’s the Macomb Daily story: Judge denies Chrysler request, Jury awarded $5.6 million to Macomb County accident victim
