When 16-year-old Rita Goehner accidentally veered out into oncoming traffic, she ended her own life – and permanently changed the life of 21-year-old Laura Estrada, who suffered a complicated ankle fracture as a result of the accident. Faced with a bleak financial outlook, Estrada made the decision to pursue a claim against the estate of Goehner, seeking compensation for lost economic opportunities. A San Luis Obispo jury recently awarded Estrada $1.6 million in the case.
