While it has been about three years since his near-fatal stage fall during ASOT 750, it’s a memory Paul van Dyk and the electronic music community will never forget.
After suffering serious injuries to his brain and spine in addition to a grueling road to recover which included surgery and physical therapy, the Trance titan has been awarded over $12.5 million from event organizers following a lawsuit.
The $12 million award included $2 million for future medical expenses, $1.2 million for lost profits (2016/2017) and $2.475 million for losses in the next 10 years. They also awarded him an extra $5.5 million for other damages.
