Serious Injuries… Competent Lawyers Daños Serios… Abogados Competentes

Many people survive car accidents, but suffer serious injuries

Many Connecticut residents consider those who survive accidents to be fortunate even if they suffer injuries. As lucky as the victims of car accidents are to be alive, if they suffer serious injuries, they could be facing a lengthy recovery. The financial losses sustained during that time could be significant, and the victims may exercise their rights to file personal injury claims against the individual or individuals believed to be at fault in the accident.

For instance, a 22-year-old man was the passenger in a vehicle being driven by a 19-year-old woman recently at approximately 8:35 a.m. Somehow, the driver lost control of the pickup truck, and it crashed into a metal guardrail. A portion of the guardrail pierced the cabin area of the truck, which seriously injured the passenger.

Once emergency personnel freed the passenger from the wreckage, he was transported to a hospital in the area for treatment. His current condition is not known. The driver's injuries were not as severe. Her injuries were treated at the hospital, and then she was released. The investigation into the crash is ongoing, and it is not yet known if any charges will be filed in connection therewith.

Even if the driver does not face criminal charges, her passenger could exercise his right to file a personal injury claim against her in a Connecticut civil court. If the evidence establishes that she was negligent and caused or contributed to the man's injuries, the court could award him damages. Any restitution he receives could help with the medical expenses, lost wages and other damages people often sustain in car accidents.
