Connecticut car accidents: Wreck injures 3

On Behalf of | Apr 1, 2016 | Car Accidents, Firm News

Police in Connecticut are investigating a two-vehicle crash with injuries. According to reports, three people were injured — one of whom was the driver believed responsible for the incident. Car accidents that result in injuries can be difficult for victims to recover from, physically, financially and emotionally. In this case, the victims may seek compensation for any damages they have sustained.

On the morning of March 24, a 29-year-old woman is said to have been driving her vehicle in Seymour when she lost control, crossed the centerline of traffic and struck the side of a van coming from the opposite direction. The young woman then swerved back into the correct lane, but overcorrected and hit a stone wall, ultimately flipping her car. She and the driver and passenger in the van were injured. All were taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries.

Authorities are considering charges in this case. At this time, it has not been reported what charges are expected. Other than losing control of her vehicle, it is unknown if any other factors contributed to the cause of the wreck. The investigation is ongoing.

The victims of the crash may have legal recourse. After serious car accidents, civil claims may be filed against the driver or drivers deemed responsible in an effort to seek compensation for any losses. In this case, the victims may file personal injury claims which, if successfully litigated in a Connecticut civil court, could result in them receiving financial relief for the economic and non-economic damages they have sustained as a direct result of the wreck.
