Can Dental Injuries Be Worth $1 Million?


They can when dental injuries are in addition to more serious injuries.

A man who was injured in a bicycle accident on La Jolla Shores Drive, San Diego, California sued the city of San Diego alleging that while bicycling he hit a pothole in the roadway causing his injuries.

The case, Thomas Dorsey v. City of San Diego was settled for $1 million. It wasn’t reported exactly how extensive the injuries were.

What’s interesting with this million-dollar settlement is exactly that. It wasn’t an abnormally high jury verdict but a negotiated settlement with the city of San Diego which resulted in $1 million for the injuries.

Cities have virtually unlimited resources to defend personal injury lawsuits and are usually known for offering love settlements were going to trial. Since this was a settlement with a city, it goes to show that they recognized fault for causing the accident and the seriousness of the injuries.
