Multi-Million Dollar Settlement In Impaired Driving Accident Case


An auto accident which caused the death of a father of two and left his passenger with a permanent brain injury recently settled for $3.4 million dollars.  The vehicle that caused the accident was driven by an impaired (drugs) driver who was involved in a police chase.  The driver of the vehicle was a convicted felon.  The lawsuit alleged that the DOC failed to adequately monitor and supervise a dangerous felon under the State’s community supervision. That felon ultimately caused a high speed car crash that killed one person and severely injured another.  The DOC agreed to the $3.4 million dollar settlement on the first day of trial, and just before the attorneys were to begin jury selection.
