A Yolo County jury has awarded Michial Jacobs $1.5 million in what is believed to be the largest personal injury claim ever in Yolo County.
The trial, which lasted 11 days, was concluded on Friday.

The case stemmed from an Oct. 2, 2004, accident on Interstate-505, when Jacobs was pulling his brand new trailer.

The driver of a big rig loaded with 40,000 pounds of sugar fell asleep and the big rig rear ended Jacobs' trailer and pickup, according to Steven R. Cavalli of the Oakland law firm Gwilliam, Ivary, Chiosso, Cavalli & Brewer.

The driver of the big rig was working for both Pacific Transportation Services and Ernie Newland, both of Washington.

The defendants admitted liability for the accident but contested the extent of plaintiff's injuries, Cavalli reported. Jacobs suffered an injury to his mid-back which resulted in chronic back pain. He also sustained a concussion and a fractured rib. The 63-year-old man has not been able to return to work as a carpenter.

In addition, Jacobs made an offer to settle June 20, 2007, however, the company refused to accept the officer, so as a result of the trial he will receive an additional $442,000 in interest plus all costs associated with the case.
