Jury award 15.7 Million from a truck accident in East Lyme, Connecticut.
Posted on Apr 27, 2013
A jury in Hartford awarded a total of 15.7 Million dollars to several victims from a multi-truck and car accident yesterday, April 26, 2013. The jury deliberated for only several hours before reaching their verdict. Three victims we killed in the crash. While others were seriously injured. Our office represented one of the victims. We are very pleased with the result. Unfortunately, this case is long from over since the verdict is well in excess of the insurance coverage of the responsible party Northeast Carriers. They had only 2 Million dollars in insurance coverage which is patently inadeuate. There will likely be an appeal. There will be more litigation in a effort to collect the verdict.
