A New York City Police Officer received a settlement of $2,950,000 from a private corporate defendant after he was seriously injured in an RMP accident. The injured Officer was the operator of the RMP performing routine patrol in the right-hand lane when an 18 wheel tractor trailer traveling in the same direction as the RMP attempted to make a right-hand turn from the left-hand lane and collided with the driver’s side of the RMP. The Officer sustained a serious back injury which necessitated four surgeries. The surgeries were not successful. The Officer was awarded a ¾ line-of-duty disability pension. DCD sued the defendant owner and driver of the truck pursuant to Vehicle and Traffic Law §§1120, 1123(a)(b), 1128, 1144, 1180(a), 1212 and 375(1). DCD claimed the defendants were reckless and negligent in the ownership, operation, management and control of the truck. DCD hired an accident reconstructionist, biomechanical engineer, economist and vocational expert in order to prove liability and damages in the case. In a marathon two-day mediation session, Dominic DiPrisco settled the case for $2,950,000.
