Pedestrian accidents can be fatal in Connecticut

After an individual in Connecticut parked his vehicle on a road recently, he ended up losing his life almost immediately. This took place because the pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in the area. Pedestrian accidents can quickly happen if motorists on roads in our state fail to pay attention to their surroundings and exercise caution behind the wheel.

The recent accident happened on a Friday night. Police said that a 27-year-old man was going east when a vehicle struck him in the lane going north. The car, a Mercedes Benz, was driven by a 31-year-old woman, according to authorities.

Paramedics and police tried to treat the wounded pedestrian and took him to the hospital. He ended up dying there due to his injuries. The person who allegedly struck him suffered no injuries in the collision, and her car sustained no damage. No arrests were made following the fatal crash.

The dead pedestrian’s family might understandably be outraged about losing their loved one in the vehicle crash. It is within their rights to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the car, pursuing financial damages that can help to pay for medical expenses and funeral costs linked to the accident. A victorious outcome of the lawsuit may also lead to financial restitution that can help to address pain and suffering occurring as a result of the crash. It is necessary for the driver’s liability to be established properly before a judge will determine damage claims related to these types of pedestrian accidents in Connecticut.
