Man rammed by subway’s moving platform, awarded $10 million

A jury awarded $10 million to a man who sustained fractures and organ perforations when his torso was trapped and repeatedly crushed by a subway station’s mechanical platform extender. The suit’s plaintiff, Michael Dion, fell between the permanent platform and a stopped train at a Manhattan subway station in December 2010. The platform extender, which bridges the gap between the platform and the train, activated and rammed Dion more than 150 times before he could be freed. Dion’s lawyer argued that the extender should have had a sensor that would have detected an obstruction and deactivated the device. A jury sided with Dion. It awarded $10 million, and Dion recovered an additional $343,655.65 for agreed-upon medical expenses.

New York County

Restaurant liable for meal that injured patron’s esophagus

A Manhattan restaurant must pay more than $1.3 million to a patron who suffered an esophageal abscess after inadvertently ingesting a metal bristle that was hidden in one of the eatery’s meals. In his lawsuit against the restaurant, the injured man contended that the accident was a result of the restaurant’s staff having used a cheap wire cleaning brush to scrub pots near a food-preparation area. He further contended that the brush was a shoddy utensil purchased at a hardware store and was not intended for use in restaurants. A jury ruled against the restaurant, but its award of slightly more than $1.5 million was reduced by $200,000 because the jury determined that the injured diner did not seek timely medical attention.
