An Alabama circuit court jury awarded a U.S. Army veteran $18 million in damages from a 2015 accident that left him with mental and physical disabilities.

A statement from Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys said the verdict for Zachary Lucas came after he suffered a catastrophic brain injury when struck on I-22 by a van driven by Michael Cannon. Cannon was insured by Progressive Insurance Company, which initially proposed a $12,500 settlement, the statement said.

The case stems from a Nov. 16, 2015 incident where Lucas’ motorcycle ran of gas and he pulled it on to the shoulder of the highway, where he was struck by Cannon’s vehicle. Although Lucas had on a helmet at the time of the crash, he suffered serious and life-threatening injuries, including a fractured skull and brain hemorrhage that left him with serious and permanent physical and mental deficits.
