The settlement was the result of a complaint that Green's family filed with the N.C. Industrial Commission in 2009, claiming that the medical examiner was responsible for mistakenly declaring Green dead after he was hit by a car as he crossed the highway at the U.S. 401/N.C. 39 split in Ingleside in January of 2005.
