$12,000 Settlement in D.C. Jail Prisoner’s Auto Accident Suit

The District of Columbia (D.C.) paid $12,000 to settle the lawsuit of prisoner Nelson Warren for injuries sustained in a car wreck during transportation.

While at the D.C. Jail on June 23, 2005, Warren was picked up by Transportation Officer “James R” to be taken to the F.B.I. Field Office. While en route, the driver hit a police car head on, causing damage to the vehicle and neck injuries to Warren.

The complaint alleged that the driver did not buckle Warren’s seatbelt and that the accident was caused by the driver’s inattention and negligence.

Warren accepted settlement on February 27, 2007. He was represented by Washington D.C. attorney Geoffrey D. Allen. See: Warren v. District of Columbia, Superior Court, District of Columbia, Case No. 05-0009819.
