Dec 10 14
After four years of negotiations with Sears Roebuck, The Pickel Law Firm has successfully resolved a lawsuit for a woman whose vehicle was hit broadside by a company van that had driven through a red light. The woman and her three children, who were secured in car seats in the back seat of the vehicle, sustained injuries in the accident when the Sears Roebuck van boned the SUV on the front end and driver's side. The accident, which took place in August 2010, on Woodridge Drive in Stamford, had been scheduled for trial twice and got postponed. The resolution was decided by a panel of three arbitrators who agreed the case was worth $495,000 to the plaintiff, almost ten times the amount initially offered by the defendants. The driver of the van and Sears Roebuck representatives accused my client of being at fault.
