A Nevada jury awarded about $524,000 to a California man who sought millions of dollars for injuries he said he suffered when a temporary sign collapsed atop him at a Las Vegas Strip hotel.

Glenn Richardson's attorney, Adam Breeden, said Tuesday he intends to appeal the Clark County District Court civil jury verdict, delivered Monday.

Breeden acknowledged that attorneys for the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino had offered a $2.5 million pretrial settlement of Richardson's negligence claim.

Richardson is from Carlsbad, California.

A spokesman for hotel corporate owner MGM Resorts International says the company respects the jury verdict.

Richardson sued in February 2017, seeking damages for head and body injuries from a sign being erected for an outdoor event in the Mandalay Bay pool area falling on him in June 2015.
