Drinking and Driving Getting VERY Expensive

A San Antonio jury sent a message to Texas and the entire country in delivering a $59.8 million verdict in a crash involving a drunk driver. The case, Armando Guerrero III vs. Nydia Pena, was tried in the 166th District Court in Bexar County. On Tuesday, Judge Laura Salinas converted the verdict into a $60,086,578.32 judgment, to include pre-judgment interest in the case. This judgment cannot be dismissed by bankruptcy (under 11 U.S.C. § 523 – U.S. Code – Title 11. Bankruptcy § 523. Exceptions to discharge (A) 9.)

The crash occurred in May 2016, when the vehicle carrying Thomas J. Henry’s client, 23-year-old Armando Guerrero, III, was struck by a speeding drunk driver who ran a red light on Southwest Military Drive.

Mr. Guerrero suffered facial and abdominal injuries and underwent surgery for a broken jaw, spleen repair, and other injuries.  Article from News.law.
