In 2005, 14-year-old Hanford, California resident Christopher Chan was riding his bicycle on the streets of his hometown when he was struck by a vehicle. Chan suffered severe injuries in the collision, including a traumatic brain injury that significantly limited Chan’s cognitive ability. Chan’s parents filed a suit against the city, claiming that municipal workers failed to maintain basic safety standards on the street where the collision occurred. The $15 million that was recently awarded in the case will be paid in installments over the course of Chan’s lifetime.
