$4.4 Million - Connie C
Water on Roadway
Despite the fact that this case was referred to Dansker & Aspromonte LLP Associates by another attorney 17 years after the accident took place, a stunning verdict was won through painstaking investigation and tireless preparation. Connie C. was a cabaret singer driving home in a heavy rainstorm on the Grand Central Parkway after a performance on Long Island. Her car suddenly drove into a pond of water on the roadway which caused her car to slide across multiple lanes of traffic and over an embankment. She suffered serious physical and psychological injuries. At trial, it was shown that, despite the passage of so much time, the City had failed to adequately clean the storm sewers, which caused the ponding and made driving in that area extremely dangerous.
