2 Lawsuits Target Trumbull

The plaintiffs are suing over a summer camp mishap and a fall.

Two victims of accidents are seeking unspecified damages from the town.

Liam Carr, through his father, Thomas Carr, alleges that on June 29, 2010, he was attending a Recreation Department summer camp program at Middlebrook School when he was hit the mouth with a baseball bat.

The Recreation Department is accused of failing to supervise a child playing with a baseball bat.

Carr suffered bleeding, loss of teeth, a chipped tooth, cuts, bruising to his chest and pain and suffering, the suit states.

He "will in the future be forced to expend a sum of money for medical and/or dental care and attention, x-rays, medication, physical therapy, hospitalization, surgery and surgical equipment.

Donahue & Brown of Fairfield filed the suit.

Mario Palmieri v. the Public Works Department

Shortly after the first incident, Mario Palmieri of Lillian Drive was walking on Lillian Drive on July 11, 2010, when he stepped into a nine-inch deep sinkhole near a maintenance facility and parking area.

The hole was not marked, and Palmieri hurt his left knee and strained his hip. He received and continues to receive medical treatment, according to the suit.

The suit also names the Aquarion Water Co. and the Burns Construction Co. of Stratford.

Aquarion failed to properly fix the hole, which was used to fix a broken water pipe in April, the suit states.

The suit was filed by Robert A. Lacobelle, Esq., of Trumbull.
