The Maine Morning Sentinel reports a judge has awarded a Readfield woman close to $1.5 million for injuries suffered in a 2006 auto accident.
The 85-year-old woman collided with the other car which was blocking her lane as the driver was backing his car into his driveway. Once she saw the car, it was too late to avoid the accident.
As a result of her injuries, the woman, once independent, now has to live in an assisted-living facility.
The woman sued the driver and his business after his automotive insurance paid to the limit of the policy and the business’s insurance denied liability.
