In 2007, a police captain rear-ended Robert Myers and Karen Myers. The Myers’ car then hit the one in front of them, injuring them in the process. The Myers are now filing suit, claiming that Karen suffers from trigeminal neuralgia, “suicide disease,” as a result of the accident. This condition causes “episodes of intense, stabbing, electric shock-like pain” around her face. This condition can last a lifetime.
The suit proposes a settlement of $280,000. It looks as though the Metro Council will most likely accept the settlement, but is still reviewing their options.
