Woman Wins Largest Personal Injury Case in Western New York

Natalie Barnhard of Cheektowaga, N.Y. has won the single largest personal injury award in western New York history. A state supreme court jury has awarded 30-year-old Barnhard $66 million after she was paralyzed in a workplace accident.

The judgment is against Cybex International, the manufacturer of the machine.
