Walter Browning, 55, of Weatherford, Texas, was awarded $6 million for a motorcycle accident in 2006 that involved a tractor-trailer. A court in Waco, Texas found the driver, employed by Colonial Freight Systems, negligent in causing the accident by moving into a lane occupied by the motorcyclist.
Mr. Browning sustained permanent personal injuries in the crash. The truck driver’s argument was based on a statement by the driver taken by police at the scene, which claimed that Mr. Browning drove into the tractor-trailer directly. Browning was incapacitated the scene of the accident and unable to enter a statement himself.
