Two personal injury claims settled by the San Diego City Council
The San Diego City Council agreed during the third week of July to pay $450,000 for the settlement of two personal injury claims.
$375,000 of the total amount will go to Garrett and Pam Slavin, who incurred serious injuries, including bone fractures, when a Nissan SUV crashed into them while they were on a Harley Davidson motorcycle in 2013. The couple claims the city is partially at fault because the area was not properly striped. Meanwhile, $75,000 of the total amount will go to Jose and Elba Rios, who claimed that they were hurt in their home in 2012 by police officers who responded to a call of a domestic disturbance.
