Woman Reaches $5.5M Settlement After Tree Severely Injured Her and Her Children

A mother of three who was critically injured when a massive tree fell on her in Central Park six years ago has reached a $5.5 million settlement with the city and companies that cared for the tree, according to court documents.

Anne Monoky was walking through the park with her three young sons on Aug. 15, 2017 when a 75-foot-tall tree suddenly fell on them near Central Park West and West 62nd Street, leaving her “completely immobilized,” according to her attorneys at the time. The initial complaint said Monoky suffered a traumatic brain injury, concussion and multiple spinal fractures that left her with a lifelong threat of paralysis.

Monoky had said in court documents that she had difficulty breastfeeding as a result of her injures. The kids – who were one month old, 2 and 4 at the time – also suffered multiple injuries, including a brain hemorrhage and a concussion suffered by the 2-year-old.
