A Delaware County, Pa., jury has awarded a man $200,000 for a car accident case despite the fact that he had limited tort coverage, missed no work, had barely any medical expenses and had a year-and-a-half gap in treatment.

Charles Firlein’s attorney, Anthony W. Ziccardi of Rovner Allen Rovner Zimmerman & Nash in Feasterville, Pa., said he was in a state of shock when the verdict came down. He knew the facts of the case were against him, which was why he entered into a high-low agreement with a low of $3,000 and a high of $15,000.
