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. Our client required significant medical treatment, surgery and suffered lost wages. Despite photographs that should minimal damage to both vehicles, our firm was able to settle our client’s case for a $290,000.00 payment from the insurance company.
In this case, we were able to secure $32,800 to resolve an underinsured motor vehicle. Our client, the injured party, was struck by a motor vehicle on the highway. Although she had pre-existing back pain, we were able to secure the evidence necessary to establish that the car crash that occurred on Interstate 84 in Manchester was the result of an exacerbation of her pre-existing conditions.
Furthermore, we were able to recover $25,000 from the insurance policy for the person who caused the crash. This number was combined with our recovery against the insurance company for her own vehicle, which she had an under ensured motorist policy protecting her from when someone strikes a person or causes them injury in a crash but they do not have enough insurance to cover the extent of their injuries. Despite making a good recovery and returning to her baseline of pre-existing back pain, we were able to secure her $25,000 plus the $32,800 for a total of $57,800.
