West Hartford – Motorist Granted $250,000 Injury Claim
A Massachusetts man will receive $250,000 for injuries sustained in a crash in West Hartford.
43-year-old James Meade, a pharmaceutical representative, was at a stop sign in West Hartford when he was rear-ended by another vehicle driven by Michael Bailey. His right foot was on the brake pedal at the time of the collision, and this resulted in him sustaining compounding injuries to his right knee and hip. Meade underwent two surgical operations following the crash and was unable to work for several months. He was hit with $60,000 in medical expenses and decided to file claims against the insurance policy of the striking vehicle and his own insurance coverage. Bailey’s auto insurance company granted Meade $20,000, while $230,000 was successfully claimed from Meade’s personal policy.
