Trumbull woman settles crash suit for $300,000

October 29, 2018 GMT

BRIDGEPORT - A Trumbull woman, who suffered severe back injuries when she drove into a construction ditch, has agreed to settle a lawsuit against the town of Trumbull and a construction company for $300,000.

Lisa DeLibero, 58, agreed to the settlement in Superior Court ending her case against Trumbull and Anthony Julian Railroad Construction Co.

“We are very grateful that the Town of Trumbull and its contractor eventually saw reason and did what was right and just in this case,” said attorney Raymond Ganim who together with his brother Paul Ganim represented DeLibero. “No amount of money can replace the pain and suffering our client had to endure.”

James Williams, who represented Trumbull in the case, said the construction company’s insurance company is paying the entire settlement.

“No money is being paid by the town,” he said.

On July 14, 2014, DeLibero was driving on Oxen Hill Road when her car ran into the two-feet wide and three-feet deep trench.

The lawsuit states that at the time of the incident there were no warning signs posted to alert DeLibero of the dangerous condition of the roadway. DeLibero sustained cervical injuries which required surgery, the suit states.
