A jury has awarded $275,153 plus punitive damages to a 50-year-old man who was injured when his car was struck near a road-construction site.

The New Haven Superior Court jury rendered its verdict Dec. 14 after eight hours of deliberations spanning two days. The jury found in favor of Randy Banks, who had stopped for road construction when his car was rear-ended by an SUV driven by Lauren Paterson, 44, of Avon. Arguments revolved around whether a knee injury suffered by Banks had occurred before or during the accident.
