A Sacramento jury has awarded a Butte County woman over $16 million in her case against the City of Sacramento.

The young woman, a highly praised medical student at UC Davis, was hit by a vehicle in a Sacramento crosswalk. She received extensive injuries that may prevent her from pursuing her career in medicine.

“We were able to demonstrate to the jury that the crosswalk the woman entered was a potential death trap as the result of it’s configuration, poor visibility and substandard markings,” said Dugan Barr.

The City alleged that everything was up to code. “The problem was that at the time of the accident there were serious problems with this unique intersection and City employees had issued recommendations for upgrades that were not implemented until after this awful accident,” added Mr. Barr.

The jury verdict of $16 million is among the largest single-injury awards by a jury in the United States.
