On April 26, 2006, Arnulfo Prado was hit from behind by a LA County Sheriff’s deputy. The deputy was not paying attention when he changed lanes. Prado had come to a stop ahead in order to avoid hitting a car in front of him. By the time the deputy noticed Prado it was too late; he rammed him from behind. Prado suffered spinal injuries as a result of the accident that required surgery.
The County agreed to settle the case due to the potential risks associated with further litigation. The deputy involved was disciplined.
Prado was represented by Brent Dugue.
