Media Publications Report on $9 Million Verdict for Silver Golub & Teitell Clients

April 10, 2024

The Hartford Courant, the Connecticut Law Tribune, the Hartford Business Journal and CT Insider reported on a $9 million jury verdict that Silver Golub & Teitell won for plaintiffs James and Diana Griswold in Waterbury Superior Court on April 5. The recovery will rise to around $14.4 million when interest is included..

Mr. Griswold was injured when an imaging table collapsed during a cardiac imaging procedure in 2016. Mr. Griswold required several surgeries he otherwise would not have needed and suffered complications that significantly affected his life. The defendants contended that the event did not happen as described by Mr. Griswold, that they did nothing wrong that contributed to any of Mr. Griswold’s injuries, and that Mr. Griswold was exaggerating the severity of his injuries and the impact of the event, but the jury disagreed. 

“We're pleased that the jury rejected the attacks on Mr. and Mrs. Griswold during the trial and recognized the defendants’ responsibility for causing Mr. Griswold’s terrible injuries,” Silver Golub & Teitell partner Joaquin Madry told the publications. “This is yet another example of a jury sorting through a lot of misdirection and finding a just result.”

SGT partner Nicole Coates added, “We are so proud to represent Mr. and Mrs. Griswold. Of course, we wish they never had to endure the stress of this trial, but we’re gratified that the jury carefully considered the evidence, understood all the issues, and recognized the seriousness of Mr. Griswold’s injuries. The verdict reflects this and stands as a powerful repudiation of the defendants’ attacks on the Griswolds.”
