In Connecticut, hospitals more dangerous than construction sites

Unfortunately, a car accident can be devastating, forever changing the lives of drivers, passengers and their families. When the circumstances surrounding an accident point to a head-on collision or one vehicle crossing a center line, the nature of the crash can be horrific, resulting in substantial personal injury or even death. Sometimes such accidents can be avoided, but in other instances, avoidance is not possible, which only served to compound the tragedy.

Once such accident occurred recently on River Road near Shelton, Connecticut. A small car traveling southbound on the road collided with a larger car travelling northbound. Two people and an unborn child were killed in the accident. One other person was transported to a hospital in critical condition, and three other individuals are hospitalized, as well, but with injuries that are not life-threatening.

The road was closed for several hours while police and other authorities investigated the accident. The results of the investigation have not yet been released, and there is nothing yet indicating that drunk driving or distracted driving may be implicated in the crash. What is known is that the trash was a tragedy for all involved, particularly the families of the deceased victims.

If an individual or a loved one has been injured in a devastating car accident, they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, and the damage to their property. However, sorting out the circumstances surrounding the crash and determining liability can be complicated. The assistance and advice of an experienced personal injury attorney can go a long way in helping car accident victims getting the compensation to which they may be entitled.
