Gill v. Lorenzo Doke, et. al. (Bridgeport Superior Courtfiled July 21, 2017)  The decedent, Ricardo Rose, was sitting in the passenger seat of a semi-tractor trailer stopped at the side of the road when the defendant driver, 36-year-old Lorenzo Doke, began behaving recklessly. As Rose attempted to exit the truck, Doke began to drive away in a highly dangerous manner causing Rose to fall out onto the pavement. The tires of the semi-truck operated by Doke struck, crushed, and mortally wounded Mr. Rose, who was left to die in the street.  Mr. Rose died before an ambulance could reach the scene. Doke is currently serving a 16-year sentence for involuntary vehicular manslaughter. Rose leaves behind his only daughter, our plaintiff and the administrtrix of his estate, and one granddaughter. The co-defendant in the case is Doke’s employer, T & H Transport, LLC, who owned and maintained the semi-tractor trailer and who negligently allowed Doke to operate the big rig unimpeded despite his mile long felony criminal record.

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.
