$1.8 Million Settlement in Failure to Yield Right-of-Way Crash

Jaime Monroy Jr. and Jonathan Campos were traveling in a car through an intersection when the vehicle driven by Stacey Suchio Poon allegedly turned left in front of Monroy and Campos. Monroy, the driver, could not stop in time and the vehicles collided.

Monroy suffered cervical and lumbar sprains and a torn left meniscus. He may require spinal surgery at L4-5. His medical expenses were more than $18,700.

Campos lost consciousness as a result of the crash and was later diagnosed with lumbar radiculopathy and a torn meniscus, which required injection and arthroscopic surgery. Campos’s medical expenses were approximately $152,800.

Monroy and Campos claimed that Poon was liable for choosing not to yield the right-of-way at the intersection.

At a mediation setting, the claim was settled for both Monroy and Campos for $1.8 million.

The attorney handling this matter for Monroy and Campos was Daniel E. Hoffman.
