Connecticut auto accident claims 1 woman's life, injures others

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Connecticut can be deadly, as these substances distort a person's judgment and slow down his or her reaction time. This is why many people who lose a family member to an auto accident in which drugs or alcohol is a causal factor may be livid at the apparent senselessness of the tragedy. Although a person who causes this type of accident may face criminal charges, this sometimes may not be enough for surviving loved ones. In this situation, a successful claim for financial damages may help the family to move on from the painful ordeal.

Auto accident causes multiple injuries in Connecticut

Driving while impaired by alcohol can have negative consequences, particularly due to the fact that alcohol often causes a person to have a slower reaction time and to misjudge distances. As a result, serious injuries and even death can result. Discovering that a family member has been injured in an alcohol-related auto accident in Connecticut can be troubling because this type of wreck can easily be prevented. Even if the driver ends up being criminally charged in such a situation, monetary damages from a successful civil claim can further help to provide a sense of justice to an injured person in this life-altering scenario.

Connecticut car accidents involving bicyclists often tragic

A bicyclist is vulnerable when riding near the road because he or she essentially has no protection against vehicles that move near him or her. For this reason, motorists on the road are encouraged to be cautious when driving near them. When bicyclists lose their lives in fatal car accidents in Connecticut due to other drivers' carelessness, the deeply upset loved ones who are left behind can rightfully pursue monetary damage claims, which can bring closure to the case.

Connecticut car accidents cause injuries, death

Serious injuries can result from a car collision, including broken bones, lacerations, internal injuries, spine problems and even brain injuries. It is for this reason that a car collision in Connecticut can have serious long-term consequences for an individual who has suffered injuries in it. Even though financial damages can't make up for the emotional and physical trauma caused by car accidents, it can help to ease a person's emotional distress and help with any collision-related medical costs sustained in a wreck.
