Middletown – Settlement Secured For Crash Victim

A motorist just received $400,000 as settlement for injuries sustained in a 2016 crash in Middletown.

At approximately 4:00 p.m. on November 8, 2016, 53-year-old John Larosa of Middletown was driving his 2005 Saturn on South Main Street (Route 66), near Pameacha Avenue, when his vehicle was rear-ended by a dump truck in service for Poolman Pools and driven by Joseph Norris. Both parties were defendants in the case. Larosa sustained multiple hip and shoulder injuries in the incident, had to undergo multiple surgical operations, and incurred $118,000 in medical expenses. The defendants have denied the involvement of negligence in the crash. But after a long mediation, all parties agreed to a final settlement of $400,000.

It pays to be aware of the circumstances surrounding crashes involving negligence, as well as the processes followed when victims file claims against suspects/liable parties. Suffice it to say, state and federal laws will always protect the safety and well-being of all motorists, and with the help of expert legal counsel, aggrieved/injured parties are given opportunities to cope and find closure.

A pedestrian was killed in New Haven early yesterday morning.

A few minutes before 4:00 a.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to 662 Middletown Avenue (Route 17) after receiving reports of a pedestrian accident in the area.
