A New York City Detective received a settlement of $900,000 after sustaining a serious back injury after being rear-ended by an access-a-ride. The Detective was travelling on a highway when traffic slowed and the access-a-ride failed to keep a safe distance from the Detective’s unmarked RMP and rear-ended the automobile. The Detective suffered lower back herniations with radiculopathy which necessitated lumbar microsurgical decompressive laminartomy. A year after the surgery, the Detective was informed by his orthopedist that a second surgery was recommended. The Detective elected not to have the second surgery. The Detective was subsequently awarded a ¾ line-of-duty disability pension. DCD sued the private owner of the access-a-ride pursuant to GML Section 205-e alleging the defendants’ operator violated Vehicle and Traffic Sections 1129(a), 1180(a), 1212 and 375(1). After numerous motion practice in a seven year period, Dominic DiPrisco settled the case during a pre-trial mediation for $900,000.
