City Likely to Pay $136K To Settle Claim Against Officer

DENVER – The Denver City Council is poised to agree to pay $136,000 today to settle a claim of a woman who allegedly suffered a traumatic brain injury after a Denver police officer drove his squad car into her vehicle as it crossed a street.

The claim alleged that about 11 p.m. on June 21, 2008, Officer Wilbur Hall III drove his squad car at high speed, without emergency lights or siren, and struck Renae Raymond’s vehicle as it crossed 6th Avenue from a stop sign on St. Paul Street.

The collision caused Raymond to suffer “life-threatening serious bodily injury,” according to the claim, which also contended that Raymond suffered rib fractures, lung contusions, spleen lacerations, traumatic brain injury and other injuries, and was hospitalized for about a month.

The $136,000 settlement will pay Raymond, listed as living at 1537 Jackson St., said her attorney, Richard Ott.

The council is scheduled to vote on the settlement at its weekly council meeting today. Hall remains employed with the Police Department, Denver police spokesman John White said Friday.

    With injuries as described in the article, the settlement would be in the million dollar area not $136,000.00

    @Alexy I'd be willing to bet that this is a case of 'all is not as it seems' . Having done a number of investigations regarding injuries -- this smells.

    I have to agree, with all these injuries that seems like a low amount.

    Civil suit over a simple MV accident, not really newsworthy at all.

    something's off here......if she really had all those injuries, settlements are usually much higher....making me think they may be thinking of paying out just to avoid even more costly litiation
