Georgia Family Wins $11.6 Million Lawsuit Against Postal Service

A federal judge has ordered the U.S. Postal Service to pay $11.6 million to a former Monroe woman and her son who were seriously injured in a collision caused by a postal worker four years ago in the Walton County city.

The bulk of the money will go toward caring for the woman’s child, Anthony Bilbrey, who suffered a severe brain injury while still in his mother’s womb, according to court documents.

Anthony was delivered by an emergency C-section that doctors performed on his comatose mother, Mary Bilbrey, according to documents.

Judge Clay Land decided the amount of compensation the Postal Service must pay on Thursday, after a three-day trial in U.S. District Court in Athens
