    Oh goody, more money taken from the taxpayers to pay for the shit the police department pulls. Something has to be done to create a system that actually punishes the officers and offices involved, not the taxpayer.

    not really, once dead a life isn't worth that much, plus because of the stroke they could argue that he wouldn't have much in future earnings. if there is no future medical care then there is no compensation.

    There are plenty of exceptions, but generally your average beat cop or jailhouse guard is not going to be Penske material.

    Just curious...

    Couldn't a good lawyer argue that had the police delayed the man from getting the medical attention he needed there by eliminating any chance of his survival?

    Even if this stroke would have proven fatal regardless of medical attention the fact he was left on the floor suffering, fighting to get help is cruel enough onto itself..

    If I knew my mother or dad were left in a jail cell in that condition I would drag that shit out in court until the cows came home..

    And if a jury found them not guilty I wouldn't give a shit as long as those pigs lost that loving feeling they get from putting on their uniform.

    I learned as a kid never take the first offer no mater...

    Not gonna happen unless the officers violated policy or procedure and even then the cops stays on and makes pension. They actually enjoy free corporate counsel and union protections here in NY.

    The policy is "Pay them (the complainant) to go away."

    [h=1]NYPD SUE! Surge in lawsuits vs. Police Department part of costly trend for the city[/h][h=2]Claims against Finest soar 35% in a year to $185M while total city lawsuit payouts hit $550M, or about $70 per resident[/h][h=5]PUBLISHED: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2012[/h]

    Lawsuits from confrontations between the police and the public, like this May 2012 scuffle at an Occupy Wall Street protest, have led to more legal battles than actions against any other city agency.

    THE NUMBER of lawsuits against the NYPD jumped by 10% in the 2011 fiscal year, with cases involving alleged misconduct leading the way, a new report revealed.
    There were 8,882 suits filed against the NYPD from July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011 — the most against any city agency during that period, according to an analysis of claims against the city performed by city Controller John Liu’s office.
    Claims against the NYPD cost the city $185.6 million in fiscal 2011, an increase of 35% from the previous fiscal year, when the payout was $137.3 million, the report notes.

    there is, but it was in Fla. where the attorney general is allowed to pick and choose which rules she wishes to enforce. once the police arrest someone they are responsible for his physical condition. with or without a civil suit settlement, there should be a criminal negligence case filed by the DA on behalf of the state, except it was in Fla. where the rules melt in the heat.

    they figure out how much his lost life is worth in terms of how much he conceivably would have earned in the years he had left to live had he survived after the stroke. he was 51 so he had another 20 years that he could be gainfully employed, assuming he retired at 70-72. 1 million for a lost 20 years is very good compensation when you consider that the average american makes maybe 1 million over the cost of their entire life.

    same thing happened to my father when he was made incontinent as a result of a sloppy prostate operation. as long as he was alive the estimate was 1.5-2.5 mill but as soon as he died the number dropped to 50k because he probably wouldn't have earned much more had he lived anyway.

    far be it for me to defend ML, but that is how they determine compensation in the courts once the injured party is dead. when they are alive and suing for damage compensation there are other intangibles that are included in the decision, but once dead it becomes just how much could the person have probably earned in the years he statistically had remaining had he lived. that's not ML's decision; it's just how the courts put a price on lost lives.

    that would be fine if you had unending resources, but lawyers have to get paid, and a lawyer also has a duty to recommend a reasonable offer. The cops didn't cause the stroke (it appears he was driving erratically because of it) so the damages are based on his potential earnings, any medical expenses and loss of consortium.

    I know you think you'd want to drag out the case, but take it from someone who spends her days in court, it's exhausting, most people never want to walk into a courtroom once, let alone over and over again.
