Sometimes, traffic wrecks involve a series of vehicles, while others may only involve a single driver. Either way, the consequences can be devastating and may lead to either death or serious injuries. When multi-vehicle crashes happen, the ramifications can leave victims with many different types of problems, from physical pain to medical costs. In Connecticut, these wrecks have turned the lives of many victims upside down and it is crucial for those who drive recklessly to be held accountable.
A recent traffic collision that transpired in Connecticut involved three vehicles. Following the accident, which did not lead to any reported injuries, authorities had to shut down the I-84 lane where the collision happened. The wreck occurred at around 4:40 p.m. in Manchester.
Law enforcement officials said that the accident happened on I-84 heading east, over the center lanes. However, it was not specified which lane the accident took place in. Moreover, the cause of the accident has not been disclosed at this time.
For victims of auto wrecks, making sense of an accident afterward can be hard. As if the immediate consequences of an accident, such as broken bones and hospital bills, are not hard enough, even more problems may arise down the road. For example, a victim may lose his or her ability to perform certain job responsibilities due to injuries sustained in the wreck. If you are facing any of these challenges, speaking with an attorney may be a good decision.
