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.
Suffering a vehicle accident in Connecticut can be shocking and painful. Each accident claim has its own value, and it typically value varies from one accident to another and from one person to another. The non-economic and economic losses you suffer in the auto accident will determine the worth of your claim.
A fatal head-on accident recently occurred in Connecticut, causing understandable shock and sorrow among family members of the victim. The victim's loved ones naturally might ask how this type of auto accident could have happened. The tragedy unfolded in the Route 4 area during the morning hours as a 58-year-old man was driving a car.
Major injuries can stem from a car crash -- spine issues, brain and internal injuries, cuts and even broken bones. This is why one person's negligence behind the wheel can have a long-term impact on another motorist or passenger on a Connecticut roadway. Monetary compensation may not be able to get rid of the physical harm done as a result of an unexpected auto accident. However, it can help to address a victim's pain and suffering or emotional distress in such a situation.
A head-on crash is often fatal, due to the force of the two cars striking each other. This is especially true if the vehicles are moving at a high rate of speed. In those circumstances, colliding with another car is akin to slamming into a brick wall. Sometimes, monetary compensation can help to ease pain and suffering in a fatal Connecticut motor vehicle accident, when proof of driver negligence is established as a causal factor.
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.
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.
