CIVIC CENTER -- Burbank has agreed to pay a Glendale woman $13,000 to

settle her personal injury claim stemming from a car accident, the city

attorney said.


Shortly after a city transit van backed into her car in August 1998,

Armine Grigorian filed suit against Burbank in Glendale Superior Court,

City Attorney Dennis Barlow said.

Grigorian, 41, and her children Kahren, 18, and Nune, 16, suffered


minor neck and back injuries in the collision, Barlow said.

“We backed into her,” Barlow said. “We had some responsibility.”

Grigorian’s car suffered less than $1,000 in damage. The medical bills

from the injuries made up the bulk of the settlement.

The settlement was announced at Nov. 16’s City Council meeting.
