Hartford – Settlement For Crash Victim
A motorist will receive a $200,000 settlement in connection with a highway crash in Hartford that injured her.
Back in 2016, 57-year-old Donna Mattera of East Granby was driving her 2015 Nissan Murano on I-91 South when she was rear-ended by another vehicle in the vicinity of Exit 33. Mattera’s vehicle was struck by a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu driven by William Robinson. While the impact was not severe, it resulted in serious injuries to Mattera and she underwent several medical treatments because of this. She filed her case in May 2018, and after a recent mediation, both parties agreed to a $200,000 settlement that will be paid out before the end of the year.
In this case, the defense focused on the advanced age of the victim and her condition, while the plaintiff highlighted the lack of any medical treatment prior to the incident. Regardless of circumstances, reckless behavior or negligence are factors that will make responsible parties liable to damages that their victims might claim. This is just one of many possible scenarios that we can study. In these situations, it would be beneficial to have legal experts evaluating our cases and making recommendations.
