Recent Case Summaries

  1. Hassett & George recovered more than $900,000 for a local woman injured in a motor vehicle accident.  Our client was picking up her child at school when she was rear-ended by a distracted driver operating a commercial van. She sustained significant injuries including a traumatic brain injury.  The impact was devastating, and the injuries were life altering.  The client was taken by Life Star from the scene of the accident and admitted to a local hospital for weeks.  Hassett & George vigorously pursued claims against the driver of the commercial van and his insurance company.  When the insurance proceeds were not enough, we pursued personal contribution from the owner of the vehicle, maximizing the financial recovery for our client.

 

  1. Hassett & George’s personal injury team recovered $1,000,000 on behalf of a local couple involved in a serious car accident in Norfolk, CT. The husband and wife were seriously injured in the head-on accident, which required Life Star treatment to an area hospital, followed by a lengthy and complicated course of treatment. The husband sustained a severe open fracture to his right ankle requiring multiple emergency surgeries, as well as multiple rib fractures.  The wife also sustained multiple rib fractures, as well as injuries to her right elbow, left foot, right knee and right arm.  When the operator of the other vehicle did not have enough insurance to cover these serious injuries, Hassett & George filed a second claim on their clients’ behalf seeking underinsured motorist coverage.  We fought hard to maximize our clients’ recovery and provide relief for the devastating injuries suffered.

 

  1. Hassett & George reached a pre-suit settlement on behalf of a 51-year old local man who had been bitten by a neighbor’s dog.  The neighbor stopped by to say hello in our client’s front yard with his unleashed German Shepherd.  As our client gently pet the dog, it suddenly bit into his forearm and latched on.  The incident was captured on a home security camera.  The client suffered two puncture wounds and required a tetanus shot.  Although the client’s medical bills were only $1,370, Hassett & George obtained a $42,500 pre-suit settlement.

 

  1. Hassett & George obtained a $90,000 settlement for a 58-year old woman who slipped and fell on accumulated ice on a common area sidewalk at a condominium complex.  The fall caused her to break two bones in her ankle, requiring surgical repair.  The defendant claimed that the client was negligent in failing to watch where she was going, but Hassett & George was able to show that the sidewalk was improperly treated, and the location of her fall was insufficiently lit.

 

  1. Hassett & George’s client was driving on state route 4 in Farmington when a car pulled out of a side street and T-boned his vehicle, forcing him across the center line into oncoming traffic where he was hit head-on by another vehicle.  He suffered a torn knee ligament requiring surgery, as well as a fractured ankle also requiring surgery.  After extensive discovery, Hassett & George was able to obtain a $400,000 pre-trial settlement.

 

  1. A young driver made an illegal turn on red, striking Hassett & George’s client broadside as he passed through an intersection.  The collision caused neck and back pain that resolved within a few months, but also caused damage to knee cartilage that resisted physical therapy and other conservative treatments.  After many months of physical therapy and injections, doctors were finally able to reduce the client’s knee pain sufficiently to avoid surgery.  Hassett & George caught the responsible driver in a lie about his pre-accident activities and was able to obtain a pre-trial settlement of $120,000.
