Domino’s Pizza Ordered to Pay Over $10 Million in Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Justice scale on blue backgroundAfter a crash with a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver killed a man, an Orange County jury has awarded over $10 million in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by his widow.

Richard Wiederhold, a district fire chief in Brevard County, suffered a spinal cord injury in the January 2011 crash, that resulted in Quadriplegy. He later died of his injuries in March 2012.

The jury determined that Michigan-based Domino’s Pizza was responsible for its franchisees and ordered them to pay over $10 million.

Domino’s Pizza LLC is planning on petitioning for a new trial. Company spokesperson Tim McIntyre said. “The delivery driver was an employee of an independent franchise owner…As he did not work for us, we believe there are grounds for a new trial.”
