One family is likely devastated following the loss of one man’s life in a Connecticut vehicle accident. The auto accident took place on Connecticut 66 on a recent Tuesday morning in mid-February. The man who died in the accident was 22 years old.

According to police, the man was heading toward an intersection in his vehicle. Another driver was also approaching the intersection, and the two drivers ended up colliding. The man in the first vehicle suffered injuries and was transported to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

According to the report, the driver of the second vehicle refused treatment. Meanwhile, the passenger in the car of the driver who died suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Authorities closed the road for a few hours following the accident as they continued to investigate the crash. The police investigation may yield information regarding who was at fault in the tragic Connecticut auto accident.

When a multiple-vehicle auto accident occurs and injuries or deaths result, those left to deal with their injuries or losses may be unsure about where to turn. Fortunately, in most cases, authorities are able to determine who was at fault in accidents, which often allows victims or the families of deceased victims to file claims in Connecticut civil courts against the parties they believe acted negligently. When their claims are successfully presented, they may receive awards for damages resulting from the accidents. These awards can include compensation for medical or end-of-life expenses, pain and suffering or even for future lost wages or lost companionship.
