A Stratford attorney has secured a $1 million settlement for a 44-year-old Trumbull man who had reconstruction surgery on his right foot and ankle after a mishap at a construction site.

Attorney Ryan Miller, co-owner and partner of Miller & Morilla, represented plumber Alberto Chavez against defendant TLC Remodeling. He said Monday he had finalized the settlement Sept. 10, just days before he was to file a lawsuit.
