Hartford Attorney Secures $139,000 Verdict In Personal Injury Case

John Clifford, attorney and partner at Rome Clifford Katz & Koerner LLP, has secured a significant award for a client with respect to a claim for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident that was not her fault.

The female Plaintiff was injured on September 27th 2011 on Prospect St in Wethersfield CT while slowing for an oncoming vehicle that was turning into a private driveway. She was struck from behind by another car and sustained soft tissue hyperflexion/hyperextension whiplash injuries to her neck requiring 3 months of chiropractic treatment to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by her injuries.

Attorney Clifford was able to secure for the plaintiff a verdict of $139,000 having declined the settlement offer made by the defendant’s attorneys Loccisana Turrett and Rosenbaum of Wallingford CT made on behalf of Liberty Mutual and its insured of just $7,000. The case was tried in front of Judge Vachelli over 3 days in the Hartford superior court.

Commenting on the successful outcome of the case Mr. Clifford said “I’m delighted for my client that we were able to secure a significant result that was commensurate with the distress and discomfort caused by circumstances outside of her control and an award that was many times that offered by the defendants.
