The Outcome: Sunoco denied that the sale occurred for four years. Video and documentary evidence of the sale disappeared. During trial, they argued that they had no liability for selling to a minor who shared it with another minor who then harmed our client. Sunoco also argued and presented experts that questioned the extent of our client’s injuries.
Despite their failure to accept any responsibility, our attorneys ultimately proved Sunoco was jointly at fault in this tragedy. The jury awarded Cooper $3,164,000 for his past medical expenses, all future medical expenses, 30 percent loss of earning capacity, and non-economic damages.
