A jury has awarded nearly $5 million to a courier for a Louisville, Ky., law firm who suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was hit by a Transit Authority of River City bus. The Jefferson Circuit Court jury awarded $4,951,073 to the Plaintiff, Adam Bibelhauser, who was in a crosswalk at Fourth and Market streets on Sept. 8, 2008, when he was struck. The plaintiff, then 27, worked full time for the Stites & Harbison law firm and was pursuing a master’s degree from the University of Louisville.
Because of his injuries, the Plaintiff was unable to complete his degree. The verdict included $3.5 million in damages for pain and suffering and $950,000 for lost future earnings. The Plaintiff sustained rib fractures, a broken thumb and four skull fractures, and had to undergo an emergency craniotomy, in which part of the skull is removed to access the brain. He now works in the Kentucky Humane Society’s spay and neuter clinic. Doug Farnsley and Julie McDonnell, lawyers located in Louisville, Ky., represented the Plaintiff. They did a very good job for him.
