Flood said Coddington Automotive's insurer, Empire Fire & Marine, would have to pay all of the damages. Meanwhile, Amica Mutual is seeking reimbursement from Empire Fire & Marine for settlement paid in the uninsured motorist claim.
Flood said Scavone is happy to put the case behind her. "It was the first time she ever set foot in a courtroom," he said. "She's a sweet 87-year-old woman."
Assisting Flood was attorney Jose Altamirano, of Fitzpatrick, Mariano & Santos in Naugatuck.
