Medical care for Bryan Stow is expected to cost more than $50 million, according to attorneys for the Giants fans who was attacked March 31 outside Dodger Stadium.
Stow is still in a coma after being beaten on baseball's Opening Day in Los Angeles after a game between the Dodgers and Giants.
Around-the-clock care, pain, suffering, lost wages and other calculations are taken into consideration when attorneys put a dollar figure on the event. The statement is part of a lawsuit filed May 24 by Stow and his children against Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and 13 team entities.
The damages figure must be set for for the case to move forward in the courts.
Defense attorneys have challenged some of the lawsuit's claims. Among their arguments: Stow's two children should not be able to pursue a negligence claim because they were not present when their father was injured.
Stow was at the game with friends, other San Francisco Giants fans, when he was attacked. He has been hospitalized in LA and the Bay Area since the March 31 attack.
