Woman injured in police-involved crash files $2M personal injury lawsuit
Posted on Monday, September 5th, 2016
Cannon County, Tennessee resident Katrina Sadler has filed a $2 million personal injury lawsuit in Cannon County Circuit Court on Friday, August 19 against Rutherford County, Mayberry-Buckner Enterprises, Coffee County Funeral Chapel, Manchester Funeral Home, Manchester Alderman Tim Kilgore, City of Manchester, Coffee County, and Garieon Simmons in relation to an incident on June 24, 2016 that wounded her and killed one other person.
According to the lawsuit, all the parties were negligent in the high-speed pursuit that started in Manchester in Coffee County and continued up Interstate 24 onto South Church where it resulted in collisions that killed 28-year-old Jessica Campos and seriously wounded Sadler.
David Randolph Smith, Sadler’s legal counsel, said they are contemplating whether to elevate the case to a federal lawsuit. A circuit court filing usually deals with cases regarding negligence, while a federal lawsuit is based on civil rights violations.
A victim of a personal injury accident is not only put in danger due to their of physical injuries, not only inconvenienced by the likely event that they may not be able to earn their daily wages or perform activities that they usually do, and not only exposed to emotional trauma, but are also dealt a sense of injustice by being exposed to harm that should never have happened to them in the first place.
