Texas Jury Nails Frac Company with $101 Million Verdict

Jul 24, 2018 at 02:15 PM CST

A jury verdict in a Texas court last week against an oil service company may have set the record for the largest civil penalty ever handed down in an accident involving a truck.

The $101 million verdict exceeds by about $10 million a penalty assessed against Werner Enterprises earlier this year. At the time of the Werner decision, that was generally seen as one of the largest verdicts ever awarded against a trucking company.
