Connecticut car crash leaves 3 people injured

Wednesday August 7, 2013

No one ever anticipates being a car crash victim, but it is an unfortunate reality for many. While some accidents only cause minor injuries, if any at all, others can result in serious injuries that will forever change the lives of the victims. The lives of at least two Connecticut residents will likely be completely altered after a car crash that left three people injured.

The accident occurred in the morning in late July. When police arrived at the site of the accident, a 19-year-old male was found lying in the street by his vehicle. He is said to have several severe injuries, including a broken neck and brain damage. A second 19-year-old male, presumably the passenger in the first car, was found lying in the woods nearby and is also believed to have a broken neck.

While details from the accident continue to emerge as police conduct their investigation, it appears that the sedan the two young men were traveling in collided with another sedan driven by a 50-year-old female. The female victim was treated for a broken arm. Police believe that the young man’s speed was a contributing factor in the accident.

It is apparent that these individuals have suffered serious injuries as a result of the car crash that could affect the rest of their lives. It is not uncommon for these individual to experience extended medical care for both physical and emotional stress which could contribute to economic loss due to bills and loss of income. While a Connecticut criminal court can apply a penalty such as loss of driver’s license, if the victims can prove their injuries were a result of someone’s negligence in a civil court, they could receive monetary reimbursement to help with the financial ramifications of such an accident.
