Wisconsin Jury Awards $910,000 Teen Injured In Bicycle Accident

On March 10, 2010, Trevor Brady was riding his bicycle near a construction site when he ran into several iron beams protruding from a backhoe two feet into the sidewalk. Trevor’s cheek was torn off, and he suffered other facial lacerations and injuries to his teeth. He was 13 years old.

The Defendant, Plocher Construction, immediately accepted liability for the accident. The case went to trial on the issue of damages. According to the lawsuit, Plaintiffs sought $3.5 million for disfigurement, loss of normal life, pain and suffering and emotional distress. However, the defense asked the jury to award the Plaintiff only his actual medical expenses: $250,000. The defense argued that Trevor was living a normal life, which included dating and planning to go to college.

At the conclusion of trial, Jurors awarded $725,000 to Trevor to compensate him for his injuries, which required plastic and oral surgeries, and over 60 visits to physicians. The jury also awarded Trevor’s parents $185,000.
