Grafton lawyer’s firm won $1 billion settlement after interstate accident death

The law firm of Pajcic and Pajcic was started in 1974 by brothers Gary and Steve Pajcic. Since that time, the law firm has continued to grow by providing the best service possible to clients and looking out for the safety of the public. 

Currently the law firm has 16 attorneys, has handled over 10,000 cases and recovered over $1 billion for their clients. In 2021, the firm won a $1 billion verdict against two trucking companies after an 18-year-old driver was killed in an accident while stopped in traffic due to a massive backup on the interstate.

  1. Is this a news article or an advertisement? How much of that billion dollar settlement was actually collected?

  2. This is an advertorial. Most of Vermont’s failing liberal Newspapers use them to increase income. I’m saddened to see one appear in Vermont Daily Chronicles.
    I thought you guys were better than that…

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    An advertorial is an advertisement in the form of editorial content. The term “advertorial” is a blend (see portmanteau) of the words “advertisement” and “editorial.” Merriam-Webster dates the origin of the word to 1946.

    In printed publications, the advertisement is usually written to resemble an objective article and designed to ostensibly look like a legitimate and independent news story. In television, the advertisement is similar to a short infomercial presentation of products or services. These can either be in the form of a television commercial or as a segment on a talk show or variety show. In radio, these can take the form of a radio commercial or a discussion between the announcer and representative. The concept of internet-based advertorials is linked to native advertising; however, whether the two terms are synonymous is contested.

    Advertorials, especially those that are not clearly disclosed, are the subject of controversy in journalism ethics and marketing ethics. Researchers have found that they often mislead readers who are unaware of their origin, co-opting and damaging a publication’s reputation.

  3. That is horrible. How much is all of our insurance going up because of this? I don’t know the details of this case but 1 billion is over the top. I lost a sister to an accident and we didn’t go out and figure out who we could sue. I don’t have a lot of respect for ambulance chasers. Shame on them.
