New Haven – Motorist Accepts Personal Injury Settlement
A road injury victim just accepted a settlement in New Haven.
Back in 2016, 48-year-old Marie Ann Acurantes was driving her 2016 Jeep on I-91 southbound, just before exit 19, when she was rear-ended by a 2007 Buick LaCrosse CX driven by Jennifer Vitello. Acurantes sustained multiple internal injuries in the collision. Since the incident, she had already incurred more than $90,000 in medical expenses and had lost a job opportunity because of her physical limitations. This recent career setback was the main factor that helped her legal counsel secure the settlement. To this day, she continues to require regular medical treatment. The recent settlement has granted her $365,000.
Motorists injured in road incidents; particularly those that involve negligence, DUI or reckless behavior; have options at their disposal. Under appropriate circumstances, and with the help of expert legal counsel, victims can file for damages/compensation and find closure after these traumatic events.
