$ 10 Million Accord In Van-Truck Mishap

Jul 10, 1997 | New York Law Journal A structured settlement with a cash cost of $ 10 million was reported this week on behalf of a Canadian family injured when their minivan crashed into an overturned tractor-trailer nearly two years ago on Interstate 87 in upstate New York.

The bulk of the settlement, which has a projected value of $ 78 million, went to a 3-year-old girl, who suffered brain damage, and cerebral spastic triplegia and other injuries, according to plaintiffs' attorney, Jerrold S. Parker of Parker & Waichman in Great Neck. Her parents, Suzanne Zarillo and Frank Varuzza of Montreal, and a 6-year-old brother also were injured.

The settlement was reached in federal court in Albany before Magistrate Judge David R. Homer. The defendants, Bulk Materials and Cryogenic Carriers, were represented by Virginia Goodman Futterman of Bower, Sanger & Futterman of Manhattan.
