Scottsdale, Ariz. (AP) -- Scottsdale has approved up to $290,000 to defend the city in lawsuits over a pedicab accident that injured two Kansas men.

Michael Tysver and Cody Clark were severely injured in the January 2013 crash.

The two 22-year-old Great Bend residents were in Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl game. They were headed back to their hotel when the pedicab collided with a car.

Their suits claim Scottsdale was negligent by allowing pedicabs to operate without restrictions on public roads.

Clark's suit seeks $40 million for a head injury and Tysver $5 million for a spine injury. Clark's parents are seeking $3 million apiece for trauma caused to their family.

Scottsdale denies any liability in the case.

The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/1kAzaX7) a Chandler law firm is defending Scottsdale in the suits.
