Torrington CT Car Accident Neck & Back Injury Lawyer Blog

The Rotatori Law Firm successfully resolved another cervical spine and low back strain sprain soft tissue car accident personal injury case after filing a lawsuit in the Litchfield Connecticut Superior Court. The injured plaintiff was a culinary school graduate from Torrington, Connecticut. The defendant, who lived in Stafford Spring, Connecticut, made a left hand turn into the plaintiff's lane of travel on Migeon Avenue in Torrington. The plaintiff sustained multiple bruises along with cervical spine and lumbar spine soft tissue strain and sprain. The plaintiff's motor vehicle had substantial crush damage to it along with air bag deployment. The defendant admitted to the plaintiff attorney's private detective and investigating police officer that she failed to keeep a proper lookout. The defendant also violated Conn. Gen. Stat. 14-242(a) by attempting to turn a vehicle into a private driveway or road where such movement could not be made with reasonable safety. The plaintiff had over a ten year prior history of significant and lengthy cervical and low back treatment which made proving the causation of her personal injuries to the automobile accident a challenge. The motor vehicle accident, however, aggravated her preexisting conditions and left her with a 5% permanent partial disability of the cervical spine, thoracic spine and lumbar spine assigned to her by her treating orthopedist Dr. Mitchel Garden of Litchfield, Connecticut. The plaintiff's primary modality of care was physical therapy which was also done in Litchfield, Connecticut. There was no loss wage claim made. The plaintiff made an impressive witness and had an excellent recall of all the salient material facts on liability, injuries and prior medical care. This soft tissue automobile collision case was settled for a full and final settlement of $ 45,000.00 after the automobile liability insurance carrier only wanted to pay $26,000.00 prior to suit.
