SARASOTA, FL…..On April 16, 2014, a Sarasota Judge entered a judgment in the amount of $3,992,500.00 in favor of Sarasota resident David Jones. It is one of the largest motorcycle accident judgments rendered in a Sarasota court.
The defendant was Carl Ozug, Jr., a cabinet maker from St. Petersburg, Fl. In November, 2012, Ozug was in Sarasota on a job and found himself lost on Gant Road near Honore Avenue. He was driving a 14 foot U-Haul box truck rented earlier that day. Ozug made an illegal left turn in front of Jones’ motorcycle, crushing Jones and his motorcycle. Jones, 42, was airlifted to Blake Medical Center trauma unit with multiple severe and life threatening injuries. Jones underwent several surgeries and is unable to return to gainful employment.
