Rockford Register Star: Family of father, son killed in Boone County crash awarded $9 million
A Boone County jury has awarded $9 million to the family of a father and 22-year-old son from Belvidere who were killed in a 2018 collision.
The verdict is the highest jury verdict on record in Boone County. The previous record high was $1,075,000 in 2007 in a slip-and-fall case at a Belvidere restaurant.
Patrick A. Salvi told the Rockford Register Star that he does not expect the case to be appealed. “Our anticipation is that their insurance company will pay,” he said.
