Hockla, Lauren vs. Don-Mat Trucking, et. al. (New Haven Superior Court—filed September 17, 2018) Last Fall, a tractor trailer, operated by John Albarelli, barreled towards the intersection of Pent Road and Berlin Turnpike in Wethersfield, CT.  Failing to maintain proper speed and control, the defendant violently collided with the driver’s side of our client’s vehicle, a silver Dodge Neon, and caused life-threatening injuries to both her, Lauren Hockla, and resulted in the death of her passenger.  In addition to multiple bodily injuries including fractures, lacerations, and hemorrhaging, Hockla, 30 years old, suffered a traumatic brain injury and required several different medical treatments and interventions that required hospitalization.  Her life was forever altered by the negligence demonstrated by the driver and, in addition to significant physical pain and suffering caused by blunt force trauma, she has lost the ability to participate in many daily activities she previously enjoyed.  The owner of the Mack Truck was Don-Mat Trucking, LLC, and additional parties owned/leased the trailer.

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.
