An Officer employed by the New York City Police Department received a settlement of $775,000 from a civilian motorist and the City of New York. The Officer was the recorder of an RMP performing routine patrol when the operator made an illegal left-hand turn causing a collision with a civilian vehicle who had the right-of-way. The Officer suffered a dominant right wrist injury which necessitated surgery. The Officer was subsequently awarded a 3/4 line-of-duty disability pension from an unrelated LOD injury. After filing a notice of claim with the City of New York within 90 days of the date of the accident, DCD sued the City of New York pursuant to GML §205-e and common law negligence alleging the operator of the RMP violated Sections 27-a(3) of the Labor Law; Vehicle and Traffic Law Sections 1104(e), 1104(b)(2), 1144(b) failure to warn and operating the vehicle in a negligent manner. DCD also sued the civilian motorist for failure to yield to an authorized police vehicle and failure to prevent the collision. The civilian motorist only had $25,000 liability insurance coverage which DCD was able to collect. Dominic DiPrisco received an additional $750,000 from the City of New York to resolve the matter.
