    The award seems high. While there are no details on medical cost, inability to work, etc, $3.5 Mil for damage to one’s foot seems excessive.

    Excessive? It’s ridiculous!! Losing a foot is one thing, torn skin and a “few” broken bones (alluding they healed) is another. Is it any wonder this state is bankrupt? Look for future “accidents” like this to happen, folks. Hell, I’d take a cast for a few weeks in exchange for $3.5M.

    I’d also say that $3.5M is excessive without more details involving the injury/specials/inability to pursue gainful employment etc.

    I wonder how much workers comp pays out if someone loses the whole foot, I bet it isn’t even close to this amount.
