Drunk Underaged Driver Sued For Causing Car Accident

Alan Bozian and Jennifer Bozian v. Emilia Gorzelska and Krzysztof Gorzelski

In the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (White Plains, NY), Case No.: 7:21-cv-10944

On December 22, 2021, Florida residents Alan and Jennifer Bozian filed a complaint against Emilia Gorzelska and Krzysztof Gorzelski, for personal injuries arising from a horrific car accident involving an intoxicated, underaged driver.

The complaint alleges that on October 9, 2021, at approximately 7:20 a.m., apparently after drinking all night, defendant Emilia Gorzelska passed out while driving, drifted into the oncoming lane of traffic, and at high speed collided with Alan Bozian’s vehicle on Route 22 in Bedford, New York. The impact of the violent crash totaled Mr. Bozian’s Land Rover SUV, and necessitated the closure of Route 22 for approximately five hours.

The complaint further alleges that Alan Bozian sustained serious personal injuries, the full extent of which is not presently known, but is believed to include, without limitation, brain bleed, post-concussive syndrome, broken eye socket, three broken ribs, shattered ankle (trimalleolar fracture), broken teeth, and broken nose, with accompanying traumatic anosmia (loss of scent).

According to the complaint, defendant Emilia Gorzelska exacerbated the misery of Mr. Bozian’s wife, Jennifer Bozian, who is a Stage IV breast cancer survivor. Mr. Bozian served as his wife’s primary care giver during a critical time in her treatment.  However, as a result of his own extensive injuries and incapacity, including his inability to walk and drive, Mrs. Bozian has been deprived of her husband’s invaluable support and services.

Defendant Emilia Gorzelska was charged with driving while intoxicated and failure to maintain lane. Her criminal prosecution is pending with the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
