And Now We Learn that Her Insurance Company Demanded It

Remember the story of Jennifer Connell, the Aunt who sued her nephew for injuring her wrist when he hugged her?

Not so much:

The law firm of Jainchill and Beckert released a statement on behalf of Jennifer Connell:
From the start, this was a case was about one thing:  getting medical bills paid by homeowner’s insurance.  Our client was never looking for money from her nephew or his family. It was about the insurance industry and being forced to sue to get medical bills paid. She suffered a horrific injury. She had two surgeries and is potentially facing a third.  Prior to the trial, the insurance company offered her one dollar. Unfortunately, due to Connecticut law, the homeowner’s insurance company could not be identified as the defendant.

Connell, a 54-year-old human resources manager, said she loves her nephew, but told the court he should be held responsible for her injury. Connell claims Tarala, of Westport, was negligent and careless, and is suing him for $127,000.

“Our client was very reluctant to pursue this case, but in the end she had no choice but to sue the minor defendant directly to get her bills paid. She didn’t want to do this anymore than anyone else would. But her hand was forced by the insurance company. We are disappointed in the outcome, but we understand the verdict. Our client is being attacked on social media. Our client has been through enough," said her attorneys in a statement.
F%$# the insurance companies.

Seriously, just f%$# them.
