When anyone is injured in a Connecticut car accident, that individual is typically worried and may even feel distressed in light of the sudden nature of the incident. This may particularly be the case if the person who is considered responsible for the vehicle accident did not obey a rule of the road. Sometimes, monetary compensation may be helpful for easing pain and suffering in the situations of car accidents, when proof of driver negligence is established as a causal factor.
One person appears to be in this situation following a single-car crash in Connecticut. The vehicle collided with a pole, according to police. Two individuals were injured in the auto accident, although it is not immediately clear which person was the driver, or what contributing factors may have played a role in this collision.
One of the injured parties was a man, who was transported to the hospital. A woman also suffered injuries and was taken to a hospital. Both individuals were in stable condition, police said, but one or both could be facing costly medical bills in the future.
The individual who was in the driver’s seat and allegedly caused the one-vehicle collision may be held liable for the injuries that the other party suffered. The person who was a passenger in the car has the right to file a personal injury claim against the driver, seeking reimbursement of monetary damages sustained as a result of the collision. If a driver is found to have behaved negligently behind the wheel, such as by speeding or driving while distracted, evidence of this can be used to establish liability in a civil proceeding in Connecticut. Only if liability is established to the satisfaction of the court in proceedings involving car accidents will financial damage claims be decided.
