A jury on Tuesday awarded just over $110 million to a 26-year-old paraplegic whose spinal cord was shattered by a 10-foot rail tie dislodged during a New York City Transit Authority track replacement project in Brooklyn.

The transit authority was found to be 100 percent liable for Robert Liciaga’s injuries, which occurred three years ago today as he was riding a bicycle to a video game store in the Bushwick section, said his attorney, Scott Occhiogrosso, a partner at Block O’Toole & Murphy.

The transit authority was represented by the Syosset firm of Chesney, Nicholas, & Brower in Liciaga v. NYCTA, 513495, which was filed in 2016. While the firm did not respond to a request for comment, Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chief External Affairs Officer Maxwell Young issued a statement on the transit authority’s behalf.

“This verdict is grossly excessive and we intend to pursue all avenues of appeal, in addition to asking the trial court to reduce the award,” he said.
