PHOENIX (AP) – Two 21-year-old Kansas men severely injured in a Scottsdale pedicab accident last January have filed lawsuits against the city and three businesses.
Cody Clark and Mike Tysver claim Scottsdale was negligent by allowing pedicabs to operate without restrictions on public roads.
The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/1ewUlpl) reports Clark is seeking $40 million and his parents are seeking $3 million apiece for trauma caused to their family.
Clark’s suit says he suffered a head injury and has millions of dollars in medical bills.
Tysver suffered a spine injury and is seeking $5 million from the city.
Scottsdale denies any liability in the case.
The Great Bend, Kan., men were in Arizona for the 2013 Fiesta Bowl game. They were taking a pedicab back to their hotel when it collided with a car.
