Represented by Morgan & Morgan attorneys Derrick Connell, Grant Gillenwater, Ed Combs and Ryan McCarville, Ms. Brassard was awarded damages for past and future pain and suffering and medical expenses for injuries to her shoulder, elbow and hand. The highest offer from the defense before trial was $110,000, making the final verdict nearly 10 times the pre-trial offer. 

“We are so pleased to have won justice for our client,” said attorney Derrick Connell. “The injuries Ms. Brassard sustained in the crash had an extremely disruptive and detrimental impact on her life. As she recovered from her surgeries, she was forced to miss her children’s sporting and school events, drop out of nursing school, and leave a job she loved. With this verdict, Ms. Brassard can start to get her life back on track and enjoy time with her family.”

On April 4, 2018, the defendant was travelling in the westbound lane of West New Haven Avenue in West Melbourne when she rear ended Ms. Brassard’s vehicle, which was stopped for traffic.

This verdict marks the 10th jury verdict Morgan & Morgan has won in Brevard County since courts reopened in January.
