A federal court jury in Waco, TX awarded $6 million dollars to Walter Browning for injuries he sustained when his motorcycle was struck by a tractor trailer. Both sides disagreed over how the collision happened, but the jury disregarded the statement of the truck driver who contended Browning drove directly into her truck. Browning, a 13-year Army veteran and former security guard, lost four fingers on his left hand and can no longer walk without assistance because of massive injuries to his left leg, his attorneys said. Jurors awarded him damages for past and future physical injuries, disfigurement, physical impairment and medical expenses.
