    Sacramento jury awards record $24.3 million to girl run over by dad's truck - Sacramento News - Local and Breaking Sacramento News | Sacramento Bee

    Sad story but egadz. The guy misuses the company truck; injures his own daughter; and is awarded $24.3 million.

    I think the jury should have been told the entire story. Comments?

    the guy wasn't awarded the money. his daughter was. and the jury shouldn't have known the father injured the girl because like you, they wouldn't have compensated her fairly for her injuries.

    But..how is it the fault of the company if the guy's own bad judgment led to injuring his daughter?

    How confusing.

    Shit, for 24 million dollars, if I was assured that I would live afterwards, you could run over me with a truck!
