Our client suffered a fractured hip, leg, head injury and arm injury, when she was a passenger in a vehicle that drove off the road into a tree near Torrington. She required hospitalization, but made a good recovery with limited permanent injuries and future care. The insurance company settled the case for $2,500,000.00 at a settlement mediation prior to the start of the scheduled jury trial.
Our client was charged with Conspiracy to commit Arson in the First Degree and faced over twenty years in jail. The state alleged that he helped set fire to a local business. He maintained his innocence throughout the entire case. At trial our client testified and denied any involvement with the fire. The jury agreed and he was found not guilty of all charges.
Our client suffered an injury to his shoulder, known as a torn rotator cuff, as well as neck pain. He was a police officer on duty when he was struck by a driver coming in the opposite direction near Route 5 in Connecticut.
