$3,810,000 Settlement – Motor Vehicle Accident – Wrongful death of 66 year old woman after motor vehicle crash
Attorney Michael Jainchill, partner at RisCassi & Davis, settled a wrongful death case on behalf of a 66 year old woman who died on October 21, 2016, 28 hours after suffering severe traumatic injuries as a result of a motor vehicle crash on Route 4 in Farmington, near the entrance to the UConn Health Center. A speeding driver crossed the center line of the roadway causing a four car collision. The decedent, age 66, was trapped in the wreckage before she could be extricated from what remained of her vehicle. There was evidence in the medical records that she suffered conscious pain and suffering before she passed.
Not employed at the time of her death, she cared for her two grandchildren, both under 5 years of age, so that her two adult children could pursue their careers. Divorced, she was also active in other pursuits, activities, and organizations.
Through mediation the case was settled for $3,810,000.
