When, in 2006, Jerold Colwell was injured while carrying heavy steel at his job at New England Linen Supply, Co., he made a successful worker’s compensation claim for $45,000 to cover the surgery. Over ten years later, however, his back pain returned, causing him to take further legal action against the company. Represented by Alexander Sarris of Cicchiello and Cicchiello, of Hartford, Connecticut, Colwell sought to prove a connection between his 2006 injury and the pain he was experiencing ten years later. New England Linen and Colwell eventually settled for $390,000 after an MRI revealed that his back had been growing increasingly worse since the 2006 injury. $300,000 of the settlement is designated for medical expenses, while the rest has no strings attached.
