PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — Sandra Bland’s family has reached a $1.9 million settlement from a wrongful death lawsuit, the family’s attorney said Thursday.
The settlement includes compensation for Bland’s death as well as several changes to jail procedures in Waller County, Texas, where Bland died.
The details of the settlement were finalized Wednesday night, attorney Cannon Lambert said.
Bland was found dead in her jail cell three days after she was arrested for failing to use her turn signal in July 2015.
CNN has reached out to Waller County and the Texas Department of Public Safety for comment.
