The City of Torrance, California reached a $10 million settlement recently after a 2015 truck accident involving a city trash truck struck a woman and left her permanently disabled. Corazon Espano, 67, will require medical treatment for the rest of her life, according to reports. The city has indicated that the truck driver responsible for the accident is a long-time employee with no history of prior accidents. Nonetheless, this settlement represents the largest in the city’s history, although none of it was taken from Torrance taxpayers, according to Torrance authorities. Espano was represented by attorney Thomas Dempsey of Thomas Dempsey Law Offices in Beverly Hills, California.
