Family Awarded Nearly $45 Million in Wrongful Death, Personal Injury Case

The family of a 9-year-old girl who was killed in a February 2006 crash in Lakeland was awarded nearly $45 million Wednesday in a wrongful death and personal injury case.

Of that amount, nearly $40 million was awarded for personal injury, believed to be the largest such award ever in Polk County.

Last year Morgan Bryant, 9, and Brittany Hooten, 8, died after the pickup they were riding in was struck by a large truck.

Carla Bryant, Morgan’s mother, was driving the pickup and was seriously injured in the accident. Carla Bryant was awarded nearly $40 million because she suffered permanent injuries and mental anguish.
