The jury awarded another $1 million to _____________’ parents, _____ and _______ ______, for loss of consortium with their son after the Jan. 4, 2000, accident

The $15.5 million award, issued late Thursday, covers _____________’ future medical expenses and care, loss of enjoyment of life, physical disabilities, lost wages and earning capacity, pain and suffering and other damages.

A hearing will be held to determine how much each of the defendant’s – Mike’s Trucking Co. of Grosse Tete, Star Insurance Co., Nutmeg Insurance Co. and Twin City Fire Insurance Co. – will pay, an attorney for the plaintiffs said.

“This is a horribly tragic case,” said Locke Meredith, one of the attorneys for the _____________ family, which sued in state District Court in Baton Rouge. “These were devastating injuries. His life as an adult was terminated. He is like a child that will never grow up.”
