A Philadelphia jury said Honda should pay $55.3 million to a York, Pa., resident who was badly injured in 2010 when his Acura Integra rolled over during a crash while he was en route to work in Maryland.
American Honda Motor Co. said it would appeal Thursday's decision.
A native of the Dominican Republic, Carlos Martinez, 57, was working as a glazier for a construction company at the time of the accident, but now must use a wheelchair, according to his attorney, Stewart Eisenberg. Martinez can lift his arms slightly but cannot use his hands, Eisenberg said. Martinez and his wife have four children.
