66 million jury verdict

- March 28th, 2023


During opening statements, Lucas told the jurors that when emergency medical services arrived, Dargenson had a throat puncture wound and was gurgling blood, as well as several additional severe injuries. Lucas then “creatively used the medical records” organized in five binders about six inches thick.

“As I went through the story of what happened to him and described his treatment at Broward General, I took the binders and stacked them one by one in a chair in front of the jury, and their eyes just opened up when they realized what they were,” Lucas recalled. “As soon as that was done, the jury knew this was a serious case.”
