Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
If you're injured on a bus, how much can you collect? For one California woman, the answer is $15.3 million. Maria Francisco's verdict against a public transit district was upheld last week by a state court.
Francisco fractured her spine when the AC Transit bus she was riding in went over a speed bump at 30 mph in a 15 mph zone. San Francisco's KPIX-TV reports that the bump caused Francisco to fly into the air and land hard back on the seat; importantly, the moment of impact -- and Francisco's injury -- was caught on bus surveillance video.
The verdict is the just latest in a slew of large damage awards in personal injury cases involving buses. If you're injured on a bus, here are five legal points to consider:
