LaBovick Law Group Obtains 8.2 Million Dollar Verdict on Behalf of Pedestrian Struck by Teenage Driver

After a long six-year battle, Brian LaBovick and Peter Hunt, attorneys at LaBovick Law Group in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, recently obtained an $8.2 Million verdict for their pedestrian accident client, Charles Jacobus. Back on January 18, 2014, Mr. Jacobus was struck by a newly licensed teenage driver, as he attempted to cross Military Trail in West Palm Beach, FL, to catch a bus on his way home from work at Walmart.

As a result of this accident, Mr. Jacobus was hospitalized for 58 days and suffered numerous fractures, partial vision loss, and a frontal lobe brain injury that affected his speech.

“After six years of fighting, we finally got a verdict for Charles. This is a huge win for the Jacobus family,” said Peter Hunt.

“This case is the epitome of what we consider part of our Core Culture and broad vision – which is to be Warriors for Justice,” stated LaBovick. “Mr. Jacobus has serious permanent injuries and will continue to fight to regain his life into the foreseeable future. This verdict will allow him to get the professional help he needs to safely navigate the rest of his life.”

The case was heard in front of the Palm Beach Circuit Court Judge, Honorable Lisa Small, and took seven days with a panel of six jurors to reach a verdict.
