Lawyers say a jury in Detroit has awarded $13 million to a child who suffered brain damage when he was struck by a city-owned car on Easter Sunday 2005.
Geoffrey Fieger and Jeffrey Danzig say the verdict will climb to $15 million with interest and other costs.
They say 11-year-old Dallas Tyus was struck as he crossed McNichols Road to get an Easter basket. The car was driven by a civilian employee of the Detroit Police Department.
The boy, now 15, was in a coma for a month and had 18 surgical procedures. The verdict came Wednesday in Wayne County Circuit Court.
No one was available for comment at the Detroit Law Department. Danzig says the city offered less than $1 million to settle the case near the end of trial.
