Marshall / Hill vs. 62 South Street, LLC (Putnam Superior Court – filed August 6, 2014) Before depositions were taken or experts disclosed, defendants in this case involving an apartment fire accepted an Offer of Compromise for $1 million—the full amount of their liability insurance policy. The fire ignited on August 7, 2012, in a six-unit apartment building in Willimantic, Connecticut where our plaintiffs resided. To escape intense heat and thick smoke, Marshall jumped out of the third floor window, believing that Hill was right behind him, and landed on a fence below. Hill, tragically unable to escape the building, had to be rescued by fire rescue personnel. She suffered smoke inhalation, carbon monoxide poisoning and hypoxic brain injury. The suit cited the property contained a number of fire code violations related to the means of entering and leaving the rented space as well as inadequate smoke detectors. Prior to the fire, the plaintiffs worked together at UCONN’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in Storrs, CT.  She was a research technician and he was a biologist. Hill now resides in New Zealand, where she is a citizen, in order to receive the ongoing medical care she requires. David Marshall has been appointed co-guardian.

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.
