A Lee County jury awarded $44.9 million to a Cape Coral man who was paralyzed in a 2006 motor vehicle accident.
The verdict, one of the largest in the county’s history, was awarded to Gerald Aloia. Aloia was riding on his motorcycle on Oct. 22, 2006, when he was struck by a Chevrolet Corvette driven by Deborah Veilleux. Veilleux, 45 at the time, died in 2007.
According to the lawsuit, Veilleux was was driving on Everest Parkway in Cape Coral when she struck Aloia.
In the years since, local motorcycle groups have held rallies to raise money for Aloia and his daughter Holly, who was injured in an unrelated accident.
