A Queens jury has handed up a record $41.5 million verdict to the family of a New York City sanitation worker who died in 2014 when he was crushed by a street sweeper.

A jury of four men and two women awarded the family of Steven Frosch, who was 43 years old at the time of his death, $1.5 million for conscious pain and suffering, $15 million for past pecuniary loss and $24 million for future pecuniary loss.

At the time of his death, Frosch, a Garden City resident, was making adjustments to his street sweeper at a Department of Sanitation garage in Maspeth when he was hit by another street sweeper driver who failed to spot Frosch, according to media reports.
