Tractor trailer crashes are all too common in Connecticut given that we are at the intersection of so many interstate highways and transportation routes. We also do work in New York-where frequently pedestrians are involved and in Vermont. Some notable results in this area include:

*$30m in combined settlements resulting from an I-95 commercial trucking crash. Highest recovery for a single non-dependent wrongful death case in Connecticut history.

*$5.5m verdict for the death of a single mother with one child and recent immigrant from China who died in tractor trailer collision on I-395 in Montville. The case was tried in New Haven Superior Court.

*$2.5m settlement for an elderly Polish immigrant who died when she was run over by a garbage truck outside Peter Lugar’s Steakhouse in Brooklyn, NY. New York law limits the economic recovery available in death cases to loss of support to survivors and pre-death pain and suffering. The settlement is believed to be the highest one achieved  in New York City for a single person with no dependents.

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.
