16 year old female – Hip and Shoulder Injuries, Arthroscopic Surgery
We represented a 16 year old girl who was a passenger in a vehicle driven by one of her friends. As the car was traveling down a curved mountain road in Newington, Connecticut, the driver, who was traveling too fast on this road, crossed over into the opposite lane of travel, thereby causing a head-on collision with another vehicle. Our client received injuries to her shoulder and hip which required arthroscopic surgery. A law suit was commenced against the driver of the vehicle. Prior to Trial, the case was submitted to Mediation. After a day-long Mediation, settlement was reached for the sum of $365,000.00.
Traumatic Brain Injury; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; Emotional and Cognitive Difficulties
Attorney Jeffrey Polinsky represented a 33 year old married male whose vehicle was rear-ended by a Freight Truck on I-84 while stopped in heavy traffic caused by a prior accident.
Plaintiff’s vehicle had heavy damage and was totaled. Plaintiff sustained blunt trauma to the head with a cut to his scalp that required stitches. After the accident Plaintiff had chronic headaches and dizziness that made keeping his balance difficult. He suffered from memory loss, personality change, mood swings and cognitive problems as well as post traumatic stress disorder. Total medical treatment amounted to $8,500.00 with lost wages of $12,300.00. After a Court Pre Trial, the parties agreed to mediation, where the case settled for $245,000.00.
Cervical Discectomy and Fusion; Headaches
Our client was rear-ended while working. He had immediate neck pain with radiating numbness into his hands and arms and was diagnosed with a herniated disc in the neck. After conservative therapy failed to resolve his symptoms, a discectomy and two level fusion were performed. Medical bills, lost wages and other benefits were paid by the workers’ compensation insurer in excess of $80,000.00. The claimant was eventually rated as having a significant permanent disability. During the course of litigation, settlement was reached for $249,000.00 by Eric A. Polinsky.
We obtained a settlement at mediation of $550,000 in case where our client, a home health aide, was pushed down stairs by an elderly dementia patient she was caring for. Our client worked for an agency and was hired by the family to care for an elderly woman in her home. One day when the Aide was bringing breakfast upstairs to feed the patient, the patient met the Aide at the top of the stairs and pushed her backwards, causing her to fall down to the bottom of the staircase. As a result of the fall, our client sustained serious back injuries which eventually required discectomy and fusion.
Lost wage and medical benefits were provided by the Workers’ Compensation insurer and were reimbursed pursuant to statute out of the liability settlement.
