May 2022: A pedestrian hit by a pickup truck crossing the street received a verdict of $2.125 Million dollars. Attorney Randy Knutson and his client spent 3 ½ years litigating with the insurance company involved, in order to obtain the verdict. The client was thrown over 40 feet and sustained more than 11 fractured bones in the accident. The verdict will allow the client and her husband to build a new home that will provide for her many needs resulting from the accident, and provide for her future care.
