Hit-and-run accident in Connecticut injures driver

On Behalf of | Jun 6, 2014 | Car Accidents

New Haven residents probably know that a car accident can have a detrimental effect on the physical and emotional well-being of a victim. In addition to pain and suffering, the victim and his or her family also have to deal with financial issues resulting from high medical expenses and lost wages. The effects of an accident can become even more challenging if the accident was caused by negligence on the part of another motorist.

Recently, a 20-year-old man was injured in a hit-and-run car accident in Middletown. Police said that the car accident occurred when another vehicle hit the victim’s car, which then crossed into the opposite highway lane and ended up hitting a pole. The driver of the other car left the scene after the collision. The injured victim was rushed to a nearby hospital. Initial reports suggested that he was in stable condition.

The extent of injuries in a car accident can range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as broken bones or lacerations. There also remains the possibility of a victim losing his life in the accident. Whatever the outcome, the victim and his or her family usually address a number of difficulties in the aftermath of a car accident.

However, a Connecticut resident should know that according to state laws, it is possible for a victim or the victim’s family to claim compensation from the other driver and the insurance company for monetary losses suffered as a result of the car accident. With appropriate legal representation, a victim may be able to receive adequate compensation for all of the damages that result from the accident.
