A Jacksonville jury has awarded $25.5 million to a former gymnastics coach for injuries he suffered at a gym that left him a quadriplegic. Most of the award is for medical expenses incurred by Shane Downey, 32, who was injured while using a piece of tumbling equipment in 2000. Jurors found North Florida Gymnastics and Cheerleading 100% negligent for not supervising Downey on the equipment. Downey, who now lives in Texas, fell and broke his neck.
