$27 Million Jury Verdict for Wrongful Death of Motorcycle Rider Struck by Tractor-Trailer

Cindy Tran Huynh was just 22 years old when her death occurred. She was driving her motorcycle through an intersection on a green light when George Hooks, who was operating a tractor-trailer owned by MDV SpartanNash, LLC, turned left across Huynh’s path.

Huynh suffered a fatal blunt force trauma. She had been a veteran and student and is survived by her parents.

Huynh’s mother, individually and on behalf of her estate, sued MDV SpartanNash, alleging that Hooks had chosen not to keep a proper lookout and to yield the right-of-way.

The defendants admitted liability, and the case went to trial on damages only.

The jury signed a verdict of $27 million for this tragic wrongful death lawsuit.

The attorneys representing the Huynh family were Alan Hamilton, James Roth, Margaret Randels and Jeff Shiver.
