Connecticut car accident sends 2 drivers to hospital

Thursday January 16, 2014

Most driver’s education courses emphasize the importance of being a defensive driver. Overall, many would argue that defensive drivers may be able to avoid being involved in a car accident. However, some people are involved in accidents that no action on their part could have prevented. After a recent accident in Connecticut, two drivers have found themselves in the hospital.

According the police reports, one vehicle was stopped on a Connecticut street in the early evening in January. A sports utility vehicle allegedly slammed into the back of the vehicle. The impact caused the SUV to flip and strike a third vehicle.

The driver of the SUV and the first vehicle were transported to the hospital for treatment. They are both expected to survive. The accident caused the closure of the street for approximately an hour. Police have yet to charge anyone, but continue to investigate the incident.

Those involved in the accident are lucky to survive the accident. However, even non-life-threatening injuries can have serious financial consequences that often include medical bills, missed time from work while recovering and/or long-term physical or occupational therapy. In order to seek relief for expenses such as these, a civil suit filed in a Connecticut court may be appropriate. If it can be proved that the accident was caused by negligence on the part of another party, the court could award the plaintiff with damages in order to alleviate the expenses created by the car accident, as provided by our personal injury laws. When someone is injured through no fault of their own, the last thing he or she should worry about is the financial aftermath of their medical treatment and recovery.
