One example of this scenario happened in Denver in 2015, where personal injury claim yielded a very large compensation check – almost $6 million high! This large amount of money is awarded to David McDonald, a husband and a father of four children, who was involved in a personal injury trial and who won the case in court. He suffered from a terrible accident where he was hit by a bus, owned by “Horizon Coach Lines”, while he was walking on a crosswalk at Broadway and 19th Avenue. His injuries were so severe that they required seven surgeries and also a lot of skin grafts.

He file a complaint against the bus company, but they in return claimed that McDonald was negligent as well, and the case went to court where the judge decided that the bus line was 100% at fault. This ended the case and McDonald was awarded $936,020 for pain and suffering, additional $394 for economic losses and the final $3.7 million for physical impairment and disfigurement. This amount may seem large, but when you compare it to the extent of suffering and the seriousness of injuries, it seems perfectly fair and reasonable. Of course, no money can ever return your old life, but any help is beneficial when things like this one happen.
