Law Firm Secures $100,000 for Car Accident Client

Attorney James Sabatini recently secured a $100,000.00 settlement for his client who was injured in a motor vehicle collision.  The collision happened in Connecticut approximately one year before the settlement was obtained.  The case was filed in state superior court.  The case settled soon after the client was deposed.  The client’s performance in his deposition had a positive effect on obtaining the settlement figure.  In advance of the client’s deposition, Attorney Sabatini spent significant time with his client in preparing him for the deposition.  It is absolutely critical that a client be thoroughly prepared for the deposition.  The preparation includes the following; (1) going over the basic rules to follow during the course of the deposition; (2) reviewing all medical records to ensure that the client’s testimony is consistent with the medical records; (3) reviewing the police report and answers to interrogatories; (4) going through a mock deposition where the attorney asks the questions that are expected to be asked by the insurance defense lawyer.  The preparation ensures that the deposition will go well for the client which in turn increases the chances the case will settle for maximum value or that if there is a trial, the client’s deposition testimony will not be used against him.

Connecticut Car Accident Settlement With Little Visible Property Damage

Attorney James Sabatini has reached another settlement for his client involved in a car accident that left little visible property damage.  Cases involving little visible property damage are challenging.  The lack of visible property damage provides the defense lawyer with a simple and easy argument- if there is no significant property damage, how can there be a real injury?  There are multiple ways in which to counter such an argument.  One, while there may be little visible property damage, has there been an inspection of the vehicle behind the bumper cover.  In many instances, the damage from the collision is covered by the bumper guard. Two, did anyone hear a noise caused by the impact? If the answer is yes, then the impact was significant enough to cause a noise. Three, did the impact cause the body of the occupant of the vehicle to be moved. If yes, then the impact was significant and real. Four, was the defendant surprised by the lack of damage to his car. If yes, then the impact was significant. Five, did the injured person have any prior injuries/accidents or subsequent injuries/accidents involving the same body part claimed to be injured in the present collision. If the answer is no, it is a powerful argument that through a process of elimination, only the subject collision could have caused the injuries. Six, do you have a credible doctor supporting the person’s claim of injury? If you do  not, the chances of success are seriously if utterly damaged.  These are some but not all of the items used to take a case that is perceived to be weak by the insurance company and transform itin to a case of strength resulting either in a strong settlement or well positioned for a successful outcome at trial.
