O'Toole Secures Settlement for Ferry Crash Victim, Reports NY Post

Laura Diaz, 41, who was injured in the Staten Island ferry crash, has reached a $1.125 million settlement. This is the largest settlement in the city to date. Ms. Diaz suffered a broken leg and pelvis when Andrew J. Barberi crashed into a pier near the St. George terminal in Staten Island on October 15, 2003. She had to have screws put into her leg, said her lawyer Daniel O’Toole. Diaz was hospitalized for two weeks.
