2-car crash in Woodbridge leaves drivers hospitalized

Tuesday March 12, 2013

Late last week, two Connecticut drivers found themselves in the hospital after a serious car accident. The crash, which occurred in Woodbridge, involved two vehicles that collided at an intersection Thursday afternoon. One of the drivers had to be removed from the car by emergency responders. Both drivers were transported to Yale New Haven Hospital. One was in serious condition, and the other was released later that day.

As one of the drivers fights to recover, he or she may want to begin considering the legal options available to car accident victims. Although we have few details about this car accident right now, if someone was at fault, that driver can be held accountable through a personal injury lawsuit.

A personal injury lawsuit allows a car accident victim to seek compensation for injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred in a crash. Connecticut residents who have been the victims of car accidents know how expensive it can be. Medical bills can add up quickly, especially when you get treatment from the emergency department of a hospital. Many people are not prepared to pay thousands of dollars in medical bills without slipping into debt.

If you are considering a personal injury lawsuit, it may be helpful to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can help explain how best to approach your specific situation. Seeking compensation is a good way to hold a negligent driver accountable; you shouldn’t have to pay for damages that someone else caused.
