City of Raleigh Pays Woman $1 Millon for Crash with Fleet Vehicle

January 7, 2009

RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh authorities say a woman who sued the city over a head-on crash with a recycling truck has agreed to a $1.1 million settlement, according to the Web site,

The News & Observer of Raleigh recently reported that the agreement signed earlier in December ends Nirali Manish Dubal's lawsuit against the city and the truck driver.

Dubal suffered a fractured ankle, arm, and spine in the January 2007 crash with a city truck. The suit accused the driver of failing to yield the right of way to Dubal and not properly signaling before making a left turn.

Dubal's attorney, Carlos Mahoney, says Dubal has been permanently disabled because of her injuries.

City officials say the city's liability insurance carrier will pay all but $100,000 of the settlement.
