A Lake County jury awarded Dawn Heukshorst a $1,001,023.69 verdict on Wednesday for the permanent and life-altering injuries she suffered in a 2017 ATV crash in Eustis. The insurance companies best offer prior to trial was $250,000.00.

On June 10, 2017, Mrs. Heukshorst was a passenger on an ATV when the driver maneuvered it up an embankment surrounding a retention pond, causing the vehicle to flip over and injure Mrs. Heukshorst’s face, neck, and shoulder. The verdict covers Mrs. Heukshorst past and future medical expenses related to ongoing pain, numbness and headaches from the incident and compensates her for her related human damages.  

“We are pleased that the jury grasped the profound and devastating impact this crash had on our client’s life and compensated her accordingly,” said Morgan & Morgan attorneys Chris Hinckley and Harran Udell. “This case centered around not only the loss of Mrs. Heukshorst’s health, but the loss of her identity as well. These injuries forced our client, a young, stay-at-home mother to three children, to pull back on family activities and retreat from her formerly outgoing and social nature due to ongoing pain, headaches and loss of sleep. While no amount of money can return what she has lost, we’re grateful that this verdict will allow her to move forward with a sense of justice and closure.”
