The jury found Audi AG and Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., were mostly responsible for the accident, and awarded a total of $124,496.993.97 to the family of Jessie Rivera, Jr., who sustained catastrophic injuries including severe brain damage, partial paralysis and blindness. Evidence in the case showed that the 11-year-old boy was injured when the car in which he was a passenger was struck from behind, and the seatback of the driver, the boy’s father, unexpectedly collapsed, fell backward, and the father’s body struck the boy in the head.
