$245,000.00 Settlement for a 30 Year Old Man Injured in a Motor Vehicle Accident

On August 26, 2008, a 30 year old man was operating his motor vehicle in Fairfield, Connecticut, when his vehicle was struck by a van that was owned by the defendant, which was exiting a driveway of the defendant's business. As a result of the accident, the plaintiff sustained a large recurrent herniated disc at L5-S1 and was caused to undergo surgery on his back involving a decompression laminectomy at L5, excision of the recurrent disc hernation at S-1 and spinal fusion at L5-S1. Suit was instituted in Bridgeport Superior Court against the owner and operator of the van and the case settled for $245,000.00 at the trial management conference shortly before trial.

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..
