$1.5 Million Verdict Awarded to Adult Driver’s Parents

A 27-year-old physical therapist was killed instantly when struck broadside at an intersection by a car driven by a man who ran a red light. The victim was divorced, with no children; her only beneficiaries were her parents, ages 52 and 50, with whom she didn’t live. There were no economic damages. The Pitt County jury returned a verdict for noneconomic damages—loss of relationship—for the parents, awarding them $1.5 million plus funeral expenses.
