Woman Awarded in Drunk Driving Lawsuit
A Hamilton County woman has been awarded $9.25 million in damages after she was injured by a drunk driver in 2008.
Jessica Volz said she doesn't think she'll ever see a penny of the damages, but she wants the verdict to serve as a warning against drinking and driving.
On Tuesday, a Hamilton County Circuit Court jury awarded her $350,000 in past damages, $150,000 in future damages and $8.75 million in punitive damages in her civil lawsuit against Kevin Davis.
Davis pleaded guilty to vehicular assault and received a four-year sentence for crashing head first in to Volz's car on Nov. 25, 2008.
