Boyd v. Terminix - $473,000
On July 18, 2002, Mrs. Boyd was traveling Westbound on County Road 512 in Sebastian, FL. At the same time a vehicle owned by Terminix International Company failed to observe our client’s vehicle and pulled out from the South side of County Road 512 directly into her path.
Mrs. Boyd was referred for an MRI of her cervical spine, which was positive for disc herniations
at C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7. Her doctors recommended that she undergo an anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion at these levels. Settlement negotiations with the insurance company representing Terminix International Company were unsuccessful and the matter was litigated.
In February 2007, the matter went to trial in Vero Beach before the Honorable Judge Hawley. After a one week trial, the members of the jury awarded $472,520.18 to the Plaintiff.
