Fairfield – Settlement For Crash Injuries
A man from Stratford who was permanently disabled after sustaining serious crash injuries has accepted a settlement last Wednesday.
35-year-old Christopher Colon was driving his car on the southbound side of Interstate 95 crossing Fairfield back on October 3, 2016 when he was hit from behind by a car that had also been hit from behind by a van. Antonio Sodaro from Milford was driving the truck. Colon sustained serious back injuries in the crash which eventually resulted in a 20 percent permanent disability of his lumbar spine (lower back). A settlement of $741,000 was reached before Colon’s lawsuit against Sodaro was about to go to trial in a Bridgeport Superior Court.
