Teen Sex Assault Case to Begin Trial in New Britain

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has announced that jury selection will begin on April 3 in a trial involving a teen girl who was sexually assaulted at the Plainville YMCA.  “This assault was preventable.  If proper safety protocols were followed, it would not have occurred.  The entity responsible has refused to accept any responsibility for its negligence.  We filed this lawsuit to seek accountability for this young girl.”  Tim O’Keefe

Settlement Reached in Trampoline Park Lawsuit

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has obtained a settlement on behalf of a woman who was seriously injured at the Launch Trampoline Park in Hartford, Connecticut.  “While the terms of the settlement are to remain confidential, we are very pleased with the result that we obtained for our client.  These trampoline parks are extremely dangerous.  In this case, the operators of the park failed to provide its patrons, including our client, with adequate safety equipment.  As a result, her risk of injury was increased significantly.  In addition, the defendants were attempting to rely upon a so-called “liability waiver” in defending the case.  We are pleased that we could overcome that defense and obtain this settlement.”  Tim O’Keefe

$337,500.00 Judgment Ordered in Child Molestation Case

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has obtained a $337,500.00 court judgment against the perpetrator of child sex molestation in a case that he had filed in New Britain Superior Court.  “This was a one-time event involving a grown man and a fifteen year old boy.  While it only occurred on one occasion, it still has had a devastating impact on the life of our client.  The court’s decision fully recognizes and validates that fact.  The award also includes punitive damages which is entirely appropriate in this circumstance.  We originally obtained a pre-judgment attachment on real estate owned by the perpetrator and we now plan to file a judgment lien and a foreclosure action, if necessary.  We hope to be able to recover some assets so our client can be compensated for his damages.”  Tim O’Keefe

$172,000.00 Award for Victim of Highway Van Crash

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has obtained an arbitration award in the amount of $172,000.00 for a woman who was injured in a highway van crash in Manchester, Connecticut.  “There was never a question about who caused this highway van crash- it was clearly the defendant van driver.  To his credit, he admitted causing the crash.  The defendant’s insurance carrier, however, refused to make any reasonable settlement offers for this claim.  Our client has suffered greatly from her injuries and we felt she should be fully and properly compensated for her harms and losses.  The highest settlement offer made on the claim was for $55,000.00.  We decided to turn that down and proceed to a contested arbitration.  The arbiter did a very good job in weighing all of the damages evidence and testimony in arriving at his decision.  In the end, we feel that justice has prevailed.”  Tim O’Keefe

$1 Million Recovery for Teacher Sex Abuse Case

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has recovered $1,000,000.00 for a man who was sexually abused by an administrator at his middle school when he was a young child.  The settlement of the case was announced just days before the case was to begin trial at Superior Court in Hartford, Connecticut.  “This administrator should never have been hired by the school system as he had already had his employment terminated by another school system because of inappropriate sexualized behavior with another student.  It took our client several years before he was ready to come to grips with this extensive sexual abuse and his healing continues.  This case serves as a very good example as to why there should be no statute of limitations applicable to child sex abuse claims.”  Tim O’Keefe

Tim O’Keefe Scores Appellate Court Victory in Child Sex Abuse Case

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe announced that his firm has won a victory at the Connecticut Appellate Court in favor of a client who was sexually abused as a minor.  “This case involves a claim of the sexual molestation of a four year old child.  The defendant tried to convince the Superior Court, and now the Connecticut Appellate Court, that he should be excused from civil accountability for his actions because too much time has passed since the time that he molested this child. Both a Superior Court judge, and now the Connecticut Appellate Court, have completely rejected this specious argument.  We now plan to continue with the case against the perpetrator.”  Tim O’Keefe

School Sex Abuse Case Settled for $325,000.00

Connecticut Crime Victim Lawyer Tim O’Keefe has obtained a $325,000.00 settlement for a client who claims he was abused by an administrator at a local school.  “Our client has chosen to remain anonymous with respect to this case so we are not identifying the school district involved to protect the client.  This case presented some logistical challenges because the events in question occurred so many years ago.  In the end, our client chose to resolve his claim without a trial.  That was the best decision for him and we respect that decision.”  Tim O’Keefe
