In January 2010, a forty-five year old woman, was caused to slip and fall on black ice located in a parking lot of a commercial shopping plaza in Wallingford, Connecticut. As a result of the accident, the plaintiff sustained various injuries including a herniated disc at L3-4, herniated disc at C5-6, left hand numbness and an injury to her left shoulder resulting in adhesive capsulitis in the shoulder. Suit was instituted against the owner of the shopping plaza, who was also responsible to maintain the parking lot during the winter months, in New Haven Superior Court. Following a mediation that was held before trial, the parties settled for the sum of $100,000.00.

Client Reviews
Attorney Foley spent 8 long years as my lawyer, during that time he was my advocate, my friend, and above all an amazing lawyer. I wanted to write this review because in most cases lawyers are concerned with their payday, but not Michael Foley, though he was able to get me an amazing settlement, he became like part of my family, truly advocating for the best medical care during the long process. MIchael is an absolute Bulldog when it comes to protecting his clients, if you need someone in your corner, who won’t ever give up on your case, and actually listens to your needs, then look no further..
