Given Connecticut’s proximity to the Sound, our firm often gets involved in boating mishaps. This has led to our firm being called into lake accidents in Vermont and  major boating accidents in the Carribean.  In fact, Attorney Faxon recently achieved the highest known Jones Act wrongful death settlement in the U.S., and enjoys a solid reputation in this very complicated and sometimes arcane niche practice area. This is a growing practice area for us. Here are some notable results:

$5,000,000-New York Southern District Federal Court settlement for a death on the high seas act case involving a single woman in her 20s. The chartered sailboat she was on collided with a cargo ship.  The defendants were internationally based and included a shipping conglomerate and a yacht chartering company. We have been unable to locate a higher settlement or verdict in this type of a case anywhere in the U.S. 

$400,000– Man thrown from boat and injured when captain fails to grant the right of way on the Connecticut River.

$500,000-Boat accident on Lake Champlain in Vermont injures a young child.

$625,000-Teenager dislocates both her arms while being pulled by a reckless banana boat operator.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
