Connecticut car accidents can cause injuries and claim lives

When people are killed and injured from fatal car accidents in Connecticut, their family members usually feel helpless and cannot understand how such a calamity can happen. Their grief may turn into rage if the person found responsible is found to have acted negligently behind the wheel, such as by speeding. No amount of money can bring back a loved one when fatal car accidents occur, but monetary damages can help family members to experience a sense of closure and move on.

Car accidents claim lives in Connecticut

Losing a loved one in a car accident can be a traumatic and scary situation. Family members may feel grief and anger if the accident happened for a senseless reason. For example, if someone was speeding at the time of the car crash, this can be considered driver negligence. In these types of car accidents in Connecticut, the family of the victim has the right to seek monetary damages, in an effort to ease pain and suffering and cover end-of-life expenses. This can be done even if the individual believed to have caused the accident also died in the event.

Connecticut wrong-way-driving car accidents can lead to death

A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous types of car accidents, as it typically involves high speeds and can lead to major injuries and even death. Losing someone in this type of accident in Connecticut can make family members both distraught and angry. The family members of a person who is killed in these types of car accidents have the right to seek monetary damages to cover end-of-life expenses and other costs stemming from the accident; this is the case even if the wrong-way driver died in the accident that he or she allegedly caused.

Pedestrian accidents can cause serious injury in Connecticut

When people are injured in a car-pedestrian accident in Connecticut, they and their loved ones are typically caught off guard due to the unforeseen nature of such a harrowing incident. In a situation where pedestrians are injured due to someone else's driving -- especially if that person was driving recklessly or negligently -- financial damages may be awarded in personal injury claims. This can help the accident victims to cope with the pain and suffering or the emotional distress that pedestrian accidents can cause.
