$400,000 verdict – truck strikes bicycle (Florida Keys)

Shorty Jackson, along time resident of the Florida Keys, was riding his bicycle on the bike path in Marathon.  As he safely pedaled his bike, a Southern Bell truck crossed in front of him and cut him off, causing his bike to strike the truck and throwing him from the bike.  He suffered a fractured shoulder which required surgery.  John Elliott Leighton represented Mr. Jackson and filed suit against the telephone company.  Leighton brought the case to trial in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, and obtained a jury verdict of $400,000. Jackson v. Southern Bell, Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
