Police Officer Suffers Traumatic Head Injury in Motorcycle Accident with SUV
A Florida man has filed a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of his son, a Cape Coral police officer who was critically injured in an accident involving an SUV.
Damien Garcia suffered massive head injuries when his police motorcycle was hit by a Lincoln SUV, driven by Josephine Peirce.
The lawsuit, filed by Garcia's father Enrique Caballero, names both Peirce and her husband, Thomas Pierce, as defendants.
The lawsuit seeks $15,000 in damages, the amount needed to file the case in circuit court. But according to Caballero's attorney Marc Brumer, the case will exceed $50 million in damages.
The Pierces are denying negligence, according to their attorney, Bryan Reynolds. Reynolds said Garcia might actually be partially or totally at fault for the accident.
