$325,000 Verdict Auto Accident / Police Officer Makes Left Turn into Path of Driver

     Man suffered permanent shoulder injury and traumatic brain injury when a Baltimore City Police Officer made a left-hand turn in front of his vehicle. The city argued that the man was contributorily negligent in causing the collision due to the fact that he was traveling in a lane where parking was permitted. The Yost Legal Group successfully eliminated the City’s liability argument, and a jury awarded the man $325,000 solely for his non-economic damages. The maximum recoverable amount the man could have received under Maryland law was $400,000.
