Justina Bastien, from Jamaica, Queens, was a 44-year-old administrative worker when she was involved in a car accident that permanently disabled her. One morning, an 18-wheeler rear-ended the car in which Ms. Bastien was riding and spun it around, according to the police report. She sustained a left knee tear that could not be treated by physical therapy alone, required surgery several months after the accident and might require another.
