A Delaware County jury has awarded more than $5.4 million to a man who suffered brain damage after falling off his bicycle because of an alleged road defect.

According to the plaintiffs’ attorney, Thomas F. Sacchetta of Sacchetta and Baldino, after four days of trial and two hours of deliberations, the jury in Carletti v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania awarded $5.46 million to David Carletti and his wife, Brenda Carletti, over claims that the patch of road where he fell was dangerous. The award included nearly $2.5 million in medical expenses and lost wages, as well as $2 million in pain and suffering to David Carletti and $1 million for Brenda Carletti’s loss of consortium claim.
