Family of teen killed by drunken driver awarded $6M

Last updated 6 years ago

 A nine-year prison sentence was the judgment in criminal court.

The awarding of $6,062,253.23 in favor of the plaintiff was the finding in civil court.

Judge Edward Prochaska awarded the money to the family of Amanda Kordich, the 17-year-old Harlem High School student killed July 28, 2008, by drunken driver Wesley Hanson in a two-vehicle collision at Harlem and Forest Hills roads.  A drunk driving case results in both a criminal case as well as a personal injury case.  If you have been in an accident with a drunk driver, cooperate with the States' Attorney for the criminal case and contact a lawyer who handles personal injury cases for the civil case.
