  • Young Motorcyclist Severely Injured by Negligent Driver

    Last month Faxon Law Group filed a negligence case on behalf of a young motorcyclist in Connecticut Superior Court. The case Yeager v. Palluotto originated on a Spring evening in 2018 as Eric Weinstein was enjoying a ride on his Harley Davidson.  Suddenly and without warning the defendant, operating a motor vehicle, failed to grant the right of way and entered into Eric’s lane of travel, violently striking him and ejecting him off his motorcycle onto the pavement. The plaintiff’s injuries are numerous, from head to toe, including multiple fractures to his face, jaw, right leg, and right arm, as MORE

  • When PCP Fails to Screen

    Late diagnosis of a health problem often leads to tragic results, as illustrated by Hatcher vs. West Haven Medical Group LLC, filed on March 9th in Connecticut Superior Court. Hatcher is a 65-year-old man who routinely saw his primary care physician for regular physicals. For years, his PCP did not offer prostate cancer screening, despite his advancing age and the markedly higher risks for African Americans of developing and dying of prostate cancer. Without the benefits of early detection, Mr. Hatcher’s prostate cancer silently progressed to advanced-stage disease (spread to other parts of his body). Had this PCP not deviated MORE

  • Uneven Walkway Leads to Serious Fall

    Harding v. Hamilton Development, et al. (Bridgeport Superior Court—filed March 29, 2020) While walking on an exterior walkway en route to shop at Garelick & Herbs, the plaintiff tripped on a piece of broken slate and fell. Due to the failure of the defendants to keep the walkway safely maintained and free of hazard, the plaintiff suffered a serious head trauma, lacerations to her face, and injuries to her knee and wrist. She required emergency medical care, including a left frontoparietal craniotomy, and will likely continue to incur healthcare expenses for treatment into the future.

The child sustained multiple puncture wounds and bites on her arm, requiring medical treatment and leaving significant scarring. In Connecticut, the owner of a dog is strictly liable for any bite unless the bite was due to the teasing or taunting of the alleged victim(s). There was no such evidence here. The minor plaintiff asked to pet the dog before approaching, and was encouraged by the owner that the dog MORE

The defendant’s negligence has caused our plaintiff significant damages including MORE

    John Carangelo, Administrator of the Estate of James DeRosa and Stuart Anderson v. New Milford Medical Group, LLC and Christian Leonardi, D.O. (New Haven Superior Court—February 8, 2019) In May 2018, James DeRosa, of Sherman, Connecticut,  met with his primary care physician (PCP) and reported a recent history of sharp chest pain on exertion and a “tingling feeling” in his neck. The PCP obtained an electrocardiogram (ECG), which suggested that DeRosa had experienced an acute cardiac event four days earlier—the same time frame in which DeRosa experienced the sharp chest pain and neck tingling. Instead of sending DeRosa straight to an MORE

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.
