A CA man has been awarded $6.4 million in a lawsuit against the city of Roseville, Calif. and a Metro bus company for a brain injury he suffered while getting on one of the company buses in 2008.
The quadriplegic man was being lifted up into one of the buses when his wheelchair rolled back off the platform, causing his head to strike the pavement, according to the suit.
The man suffered severe brain injuries as a result. Read Article: The Washington Post
This man was already severely compromised as a result of his underlying medical condition involving quadriplegia. Now adding the insult to injury of traumatic brain damage, it looks like this man could not catch any breaks. All of the damage award will go to pay for his medical condition and increased medical needs.
