CASE: Crisci v. Security Inurance Co. of New Haven Supreme Court of California 426 P.2d 173 (Cal. 1967) P33 Torts Facts a. Rosina Crisci/plaintiff/insured Security Insurance Co. of New Haven/defendant/insurer b. Crisci was the property owner where June DiMare was living. DiMare fell through the floor and suffered injuries and severe psychosis. Dimare sued Crisci’s insurance policy held by Securiy. Crisci urged Security to settle. She had a $10,000 policy. Her policy allowed Security to defend Crisci in the matter. The settlement demand began at $400,000 and went down to $9,000, of which Mrs. Crisci offered to pay $2,500. Security denied the settlement and insisted on going to trial although the evidence was overwhelming that the mental condition sustained by Mrs. DiMare was confirmed by doctors for both sides of the suit. The jury awarded damages $100,000 of which Security paid $10,000 and Crisci was sought after for the remainder. Crisci was able to pay $22,000. Crisci then suffered financial distress, decline in physical health, hysteria, and suicide attempts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
