Washington State Pays Employee $1,152.99 for Damage to Car

On May 9, 2007, Washington State paid $1,152 to a Department of Corrections (DOC) employee whose car was .damaged as she pulled out of an employee parking space.

Elain Harmon, a DOC employee, was pulling out of a parking space at the CCCC facility in Little Rock when her car's front bumper caught a rebar protruding from the parking abutment and was torn away from the car. Employees at the nearby DNR Shop removed the rest of the bumper and put it in Harmon's car. An employee followed Harmon to an auto body shop where it was repaired at a cost of $1,152.99.

Harmon filed a general liability claim against the state. The state paid Harmon the $1,152.99.
