Shirley Nelson v. United States of America

Case Number: 1:23-cv-01813

Judge: Kathryn A. Starnella

Court: United States District Court for the District of Colorado (Denver County)

Plaintiff's Attorney: Justin E. Mosery and Anthony Michael Hoag

Defendant's Attorney: United States Attorney's Office in Denver

Description: Denver, Colorado personal injury lawyers represented the Plaintiff who sued on a Federal Tort Claims Act auto negligence theory claiming $215,000 in damages and/or injuries.

A plaintiff injured by a defendant’s wrongful act may file a tort lawsuit to recover money from
that defendant. To name a particularly familiar example of a tort, a person who negligently
causes a vehicular collision may be liable to the victim of that crash. By compelling people who
wrongfully injure others to pay money to their victims, the tort system serves at least two
functions: (1) deterring people from harming others and (2) compensating those who are injured.

Outcome: Settled for an undisclosed sum and dismissed with prejudice.
