Compensation Breakdown:

  • $5 million for past pain and suffering
  • $6 million for future pain and suffering
  • $60 million for medical care

The accident changed the course of Wang’s life. She was unable to finish school. According to Morgan Wang’s lawyer, Cornell’s hilly landscape made it difficult for Morgan to navigate in a wheelchair.

Morgan’s life has gone from being an active you women to rehabilitation and pain management.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 60% of adults in the U.S. have driven while drowsy one-third of people have actually fallen asleep at the wheel. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conservatively estimates that 100,000 police-reported crashes are the direct result of driver fatigue each year. This results in an estimated 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries, and $12.5 billion in monetary losses. These figures may be the tip of the iceberg, since currently it is difficult to attribute crashes to sleepiness. Read More

Drowsy driving crashes can result in high personal and economic costs.

  • Several drowsy driving incidents have resulted in jail sentences for the driver.
  • Multi-million dollar settlements have been awarded to families of crash victims as a result of lawsuits filed against individuals as well as businesses whose employees were involved in drowsy driving crashes.

New York car accident lawyer shares insight on drowsy driving, “Driving while sleep-deprived as seen in the above accident can be very dangerous. If the driver falls asleep at the wheel, accidents, even fatal accidents can happen. Vehicles can drift out their lane causing head-on collisions. Accidents like this take lives, change lives, forever.” said Mr. Ajlouny.

MTA bus, tour bus collide in Queens

In a tragic turn of event this morning in Flushing, New York 2 buses crashed leaving destruction and injured victims scattered in the streets of Queens, NY.  Innocent bystanders just walking casually down the street become victims to  this deadly crash. 3 dead 16 injured according to eyewitness reports after a tour bus “speeding” down a busy Queens street crashes into an MTA bus this Monday, September 18, 2017.

The Dahlia Travel and Tours charter bus slammed into the Q20 MTA bus around 6:15 a.m. at Northern Blvd. and Main St., in Flushing, New York sending both buses careening onto the sidewalk and killing a pedestrian, NYPD said.

Witnesses describe the tour bus as flying down the congested street of Flushing when the collision happened.

The accident scene was chaotic with injured victims crying and screaming. People were pinned under the front of the city bus. One man’s head was split open, with many other people hurt. Reports indicate that one victim died on the scene, one at Elmhurt Hospital, and a third victim at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Queens. Six of the passengers stated in critical condition, one individual in serious but stable condition and nine others suffering minor injuries.

Onlookers watched as a bloodied man was removed on a stretcher wearing a neck-brace. There was shattered glass all over the block. One driver lay traumatized up against a pole. Another man lay on his side while being treated by an NY firefighter.

The driver in one of the buses was pinned and needed to be excavated.

Authorities are investigating a report that the charter bus ran a red light. The impact sent the city bus spinning onto the sidewalk.

NYPD’s 109th Precinct, in a post on Twitter, wrote that the collision was “very serious” and caused heavy traffic delays.

Dahlia Travel and Tours Bus History

In February 2016, a Dahlia Travel and Tours bus bound for Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut rolled over during a snowstorm. 36 people were taken to the hospital. The tour company is based in Flushing.

According to the state police, the bus struck a guardrail and flipped onto its side shortly before 12:30 p.m. near the Exit 61 off ramp of I-95 north. In all, 36 people were taken to hospitals and medical clinics, police said.

Of the 16 people taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital, four were described as being in critical condition, hospital spokesman Mark D’Antonio said Tuesday. Three of six additional patients who were transferred to Yale-New Haven from Middlesex Hospital in Middletown also were listed in critical condition, he said.

Deadly streets for cyclists in New York

Bicyclist in the last week have been hit and killed on the streets of New York.

Three bicyclists were struck by a van during the NYC Century Bike Tour on Sunday morning, critically injuring one of them, police said. The alleged driver of the van, 39-year-old Abel Pina of Brooklyn, was arrested on charges of vehicular assault, driving without a license and driving while impaired.

EAST FLATBUSH — A 35 year old cyclist suffered life-threatening injuries when he appeared to ride into a busy intersection ( at Utica Ave. and Empire Blvd. in Crown Heights) and get struck by livery cab driver Thursday morning, according to police and dramatic video of the incident.

A box truck fatally struck a cyclist on a LOWER MANHATTAN street corner Thursday afternoon, slamming into her while making a right turn, police said. The 38-year-old truck driver was headed east on Walker St. at about 5:45 p.m. when he turned right onto Broadway, striking Yan Jindee, 48, cops said.

A bicyclist was slammed by an MTA bus on Thursday afternoon — and is clinging to life in the hospital, officials said. The cyclist was riding on Kissena Boulevard near the intersection of Peck Avenue in FLUSHING at about 1 pm when the bike crossed over the center line and crashed into a Q17 bus that was headed in the opposite direction.

Twenty people died in New York City traffic in June, and 5,514 were injured, according to City Hall’s Vision Zero View crash data map.

  •  56 pedestrians and cyclists killed by city motorists through June
  • 6,915 injured
  • 11 motor vehicle occupants died in the city in June
  • 4,190 were injured MVA occupants

Five pedestrians and four cyclists were fatally struck by drivers.

Motorists killed two 80 year old men in June:

  • Jason Tseng
  • Michael Mamoukakis

City wide cyclist collisions:

  • 805 pedestrians
  • 519 cyclists

Of eight fatal crashes on New York streets, no motorists were known to have been charged for causing a death.

Chelsea cyclist Dan Hanegby swerved into the path of the charter bus driver who killed him, though video later revealed the driver sideswiped Hanegby while attempting to pass.

A charter bus driver killed cyclist Michael Mamoukakis. Both drivers were off-route, and both crashes occurred in the 10th Precinct, where bus companies commonly use streets where buses aren’t supposed to be. Though both Hanegby and Mamoukakis appeared to have the right of way, no charges were filed by NYPD or Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance in either case.

Cyclists Corbin Carr and Ronald Burke were killed within hours of one another in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Both victims ran red lights are said to have run red lights. Witnesses said Burke was struck from behind by a motorist traveling in the same direction, contradicting NYPD’s initial account of the crash. The driver who hit Burke fled the scene.

Daniel Nelson and Gabriel Garcia were killed while walking in Staten Island and the Bronx, respectively, by hit-and-run drivers who were not immediately caught or identified.

According to New York car accident attorney Paul Ajlouny, “Most drivers who strike people in NYC are not charged. Nearly half of motorists who kill a NYC pedestrian or cyclist do not receive so much as a citation for negligent driving.” says Mr. Ajlouny.

Cyclist struck in New York

Witness Account of Cyclist struck in New York

In the first seven months of both years, 11 cyclists throughout the city have been killed motor vehicle collisions. In total, 2016 saw 18 cyclist fatalities. A number of high-profile deaths have moved the cycling community to demand greater safety measures from the city.

When Cities Won’t Protect Bike Lanes, ‘Human Bollards’ Step Up

New York City’s signature green-painted bike lanes have spread nearly as fast as Duane Reades and Chase Banks, it seems. But many new lanes are unprotected by physical barriers, which help make safe rides for drivers and cyclists alike.

Crashes Endangering Pedestrians

Only two motorists were charged for causing a death. There is a current outcry in New York City streets that NYPD should hold these drivers responsible for their negligence. Many feel that the NYPD has been laying blame on the cyclist victims killed in these accidents.

Far too many cyclists and pedestrians in NYC have been prematurely blamed for their own deaths. However with the number of deaths just in the beginning of this year it’s clear that the streets of New York have a problem keeping cyclists and pedestrians safe.

Man dies in car wreck Bronx

A 24 year old college student died Thursday, April 13, 2017 after the car he was riding in crashed on the Bronx River Parkway, according to NYPD. Police suspect that the driver, who remains critically injured, was under the influence at the time of the early morning crash.

Deadly Crash East Gun Hill Road in Norwood

Deadly Crash East Gun Hill Road in Norwood, Bronx, NY.

The 22-year-old driver lost control of his black Honda Accord and struck a wall while attempting to exit the parkway at East Gun Hill Road in the Norwood section of the Bronx. The car has a Taxi & Limousine Commission license plate.

Jesus Paulino, 24, was rushed to Jacobi Medical center, where he passed away. The driver remains in critical condition.

A TLC spokeswoman said the driver did not have a hack license. A manager at KJ Transportation, the livery company affiliated with the vehicle, could not be reached.

This tragic accident is a prime example of what happens when a driver gets behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, after a long night of partying. Driving while under the influence is a dangerously wrong choice! How many times does something like this have to happen before people take seriously the inevitable consequences of their choices! The driver in this tragic event, possibly speeding and impaired, swerves to take an exit and miscalculates, smashing head on into a wall, killing his passenger.

According to New York Car Accident Lawyer Paul Ajlouny, “All it takes is a mere second in error to cause a fatal crash. Is driving drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs worth the loss of life?” says Mr. Ajlouny.

Impaired Driving: Get the Facts

Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 53 minutes.1 The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion.2

How big is the problem?

  • In 2014, 9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.1
  • Of the 1,070 traffic deaths among children ages 0 to 14 years in 2014, 209 (19%) involved an alcohol-impaired driver.1
  • Of the 209 child passengers ages 14 and younger who died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes in 2014, over half (116) were riding in the vehicle with the alcohol-impaired driver.1
  • In 2014, over 1.1 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.3 That’s one percent of the 121 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving among U.S. adults each year.4
  • Drugs other than alcohol (legal and illegal) are involved in about 16% of motor vehicle crashes.5
  • Marijuana use is increasing6 and 13% of nighttime, weekend drivers have marijuana in their system.7
  • Marijuana users were about 25% more likely to be involved in a crash than drivers with no evidence of marijuana use, however other factors – such as age and gender – may account for the increased crash risk among marijuana users.5

Drivers, Pedestrians, Cyclists Hit & Run

Risking Our Lives Daily

According to Gersh Kuntzman, a NYC cyclist, pedestrian and driver, New Yorker’s risk their lives every time they leave their apartments on foot, in a car or on a bike. New Y0rk Roads and sidewalks are still  dangerous even with the Vision Zero initiatives in place. Mr. Kuntzman has drawn up a basic set of rules, a constitution, by which, all (drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians) should abide by in order to stay safe, to stay alive (lest we all kill and maim each other and our streets run even more slick with blood.)

“We the Users of the Streets of the City of New York — the Drivers, the Pedestrians, the Cyclists — in order to form a more perfect Understanding, establish Rules, insure roadway Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the reduction of transportational Warfare, and secure the Blessings of Safety to ourselves and our fellow Users, do ordain and establish this Constitution.”

Kunzman’s objective was to craft a Constitution in hopes of reducing violence on the New York streets.  WHY? He is sick of watching so many near-misses every day. Please send all proposed amendments to gkuntzman@nydailynews.com to be brought up at the next Constitutional Convention.

Increasing bike paths and bike safety is part of the Mayor’s Vision Zero initiative to reduce the number of traffic related fatalities and is also a key strategy of the Health Department to build neighborhoods that encourage physical activity. Through the Health Department’s Center for Health Equity, the agency is committed to investing in undeserved communities and eliminating the health inequities in New York City.

Data reported by Streets Blog reported seventeen people died in New York City traffic in July, and 5,310 were injured, according to City Hall’s Vision Zero View crash data map. 83 pedestrians and cyclists killed by city motorists through July of 2016, and 8,378 injured, compared to 77 deaths and 7,835 injuries in the same period in 2015.

Citywide, nine pedestrians and three cyclists were fatally struck by drivers last month. Among the victims were Teresa Martinelli, Matthew von Ohlen, Jorge Zepeda, Andrew Esquivel, Sean Ryan, Terrence Montrose, Roberts Nukheimra, Jack Koval, Antonio Flores, and an unnamed male pedestrian in the Bronx.

Motorists killed at least one senior in July: Teresa Martinelli, 79. Across the city, 727 pedestrians and 498 cyclists were reported hurt in collisions with motor vehicles. Per NYPD policy, few of these crashes were investigated by trained officers.

Hit-and-Run Drivers Are Still Killing NYC Pedestrians

While the de Blasio administration touts 2016 as a year in which the Vision Zero initiative continued to drive down traffic deaths — down four percent from 2015 to 225, and down from 300 deaths in 2013 — all of this year’s gains were made in the category of drivers or passengers. For pedestrians and cyclists, it was another story altogether: according to NY1, 140 pedestrians were killed on city streets, a slight rise from the year before, while eighteen cyclists were killed, up four.

Most alarming: a sharp spike in the number of pedestrians killed by hit-and-run drivers, which jumped by 34%. During the first three days of 2017, there were three separate incidents of fatal hit-and-runs alone. And drivers are getting away with it: in a report released by the NYPD last September, only 13 arrests were made after 38 deadly hit-and-runs during FY 2016. In 22 instances where someone was seriously hurt, just 14 arrests were made.

According to New York Car accident lawyer Paul Ajlouny, “You turn on the news and just about everyday, pedestrian are struck by a car. Statistics indicate pedestrians are struck by cars more than 150,000 times a year. Every two hours, one is killed.” states Mr. Ajlouny. “Often times the cause of the accident diver distraction. Pedestrian also need to take responsibility by putting away their phones while walking.”

Paralyzed Music Producer in Accident Wins $23M Verdict

A New York-based music producer paralyzed in a 2008 car accident has won a $23.3 million verdict in a Brooklyn jury trial.

Charles Scott Harding, a New York City based artist/producer/engineer/composer, was awarded $8 million in Brooklyn Supreme Court for past pain and suffering, $12.5 million for future pain and suffering and approximately $2.8 million for future medical expenses, according to his lawyer.

His attorney said the damages award appears to be highest ever won in a car accident case.

Harding, who was left paralyzed from the chest down and must use a wheelchair, had lacked closure for eight years during the run-up to the trial, his lawyer said.

Scott was in Intensive Care Unit at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, a victim of a car crash on a Friday in February in which he was a passenger of a car service, returning home from a late night mixing session to finish a new record. Another car came at high-speed through a stop sign and crashed broadside into his car. The accident occurred a short distance from his home. His condition was listed serious, with fractures of his clavicle, rib, shoulder-blade, and back, including catastrophic fracture of his T5 vertebrae, crushing his spinal cord.

The trial took two weeks beginning Nov. 9,  featuring testimony aimed at showing defendant Wojciech Czmielewski and his son, Adrian, were responsible for the collision in the early morning hours of Feb. 16, 2008.

The jury say came back with the statement: We heard the evidence and we know who put you in the position you are in.”

The liability verdict was announced on Nov. 17 and the damages verdict on Nov. 22.

The impact was so loud that neighbors rushed out of their homes. Wojciech Czmielewski, who owned the car, reported it stolen several hours later.

It was the plaintiff’s contention that the car theft was a ruse, and that it was actually driven, and often used by Adrian Czmielewski, who was 18 years old at the time.

The trial also consisted of testimony from a Queens woman, who was Czmielewski’s the neighbor. She testified that a few days after the 2008 crash, she saw Adrian was bruised and cut up, indicating he was in the accident.

This has been a long battle for Scotty Hard and this “WIN” will set him on the road to healing. Below is a YouTube video of Scott hard thanking the generosity of those who donated to his recovery while awaiting a long lawsuit conclusion.

New York personal injury attorney Paul Ajlouny in this case states that the award was warranted considering the victim is now paralyzed due to the severity of the accident.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are 200k people living with spinal cord injuries in the US. Each year, about 12k to 20k new cases of spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. The majority of spinal cord injuries are suffered by younger people. An estimated 50 to 70 % of all new spinal cord injuries are in people in the 15- to 35-year-old age group.

The cost of treating a paralysis victim in the first year after the injury runs, on average, between $300,000 and $1 million. Each year after that treatment will cost between $40,000 and $170,000 as of 2013. The lifetime cost of treating a paralyzed victim can easily run over $3 million dollars.
