Duval County Jury Awards $33 Million Verdict in Wreck
By Mark Collette - caller.com
CORPUS CHRISTI - A Duval County jury awarded a Rio Grande Valley man $33.3 million in damages in connection with a June 2011 wreck on State Highway 44, but a settlement agreement reduces the damages to $6 million.

At issue in the case was whether the defendant, Birk's Construction Inc., placed proper warning signs while it was doing construction.

The plaintiff, James "Buddy" Roberts, suffered severe injuries after another vehicle collided with his near the construction zone.

Roberts' attorney, Michael Guerra, said vehicles approaching the zone at speeds of 70 mph didn't have any warning that traffic likely would be backed up due to construction.

The defendant agreed to the lesser amount and gave up appeal in the settlement.

"We're disappointed, but we respect the jury's verdict," defense attorney Frank Sabo said.
