Jury Awards Over $11 Million to Man Paralyzed After a Skid Steer Accident

A man who was riding on the front of a Kubota skid steer and was paralyzed after his shoulder was caught by a grapple attachment has been awarded over $11 million by a Kansas jury.

Kolton Kincaid sued Kubota Tractor Corp. after he was injured in 2013, claiming there was no warning sticker on the SVL-95 skid steer concerning the danger. Kincaid was 17 at the time and working part-time for a company that provided services for farms.

The skid steer was new and being operated by one of Kincaid’s high school friends. Kincaid and another teenage friend were riding on the outside of the skid steer. Kincaid was sitting on the center step on the front of the skid steer as they rode across a large, muddy field to get to a worksite, according to court records.
