According to Paul van Dyk, ALDA Events literally added insult to injury by not calling to check up on him after he fell from the stage at A State Of Trance 750 in Utrecht in 2016. Nearly three years after the incident took place, the event promoter must pay him $12,588,643.45.

The 10-meter fall caused Paul van Dyk (real name Matthias Paul) to suffer severe brain and spinal injuries. Included in the amount awarded to him following a September, 2018 hearing is $2 million for future medical expenses, $1.2 million for lost profits, $2.475 million for losses in the next 10 years, and $5.5 million for other damages.

A name practically synonymous with the emergence of trance during the '90s and beyond, Paul also holds the distinction of being the first-ever Grammy-nominated electronic music act. Before the end of last year, he delivered his seventh studio album in the form of the 15-track Music Rescues Me.

So far in 2019, Paul van Dyk has released a Rafael Osmo collaboration titled "Moments With You."
