$350,000 Settlement in Police Unit Accident

The County of Los Angeles paid $350,000 to settle a lawsuit stemming from a December 6, 2009 accident between a sheriff’s patrol cruiser and a truck at an intersection.  Both parties contend the other caused the accident by entering the intersection against a red light.  The driver and two passengers of the truck were injured.

The March 19, 2015, settlement recommendation came after the county spent $647,307 on attorney fees and $446,906 in costs.  The plaintiff was represented by the Law Office of Susan MacKay.  See: Topete v. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles Superior Court, Case No KC058362.
