Man Paralyzed in Police Van Receives Historic $45M Settlement

A $45 million dollar settlement has been reached for the treatment of a man who became paralyzed in a police van after a 2022 arrest in New Haven, Connecticut, lawyers for the defendant confirmed to CBS News Friday.

Richard “Randy” Cox injured his neck on June 19, 2022, when the police van transporting Cox to prison braked hard to avoid a collision with another vehicle that had pulled out from a side street, according to police.

As there were no seat belts, and Cox couldn’t brace himself because his hands were cuffed, he flew head-first into the metal divider between the driver’s section and the prisoners’ area.
