Many injuries that result from a car crash are difficult to recover from. Individuals may face days or weeks in the hospital following a car accident, and they may wonder whether they will fully recover from the harm they suffered. Unfortunately, on top of these concerns, financial worries often also exist.
These issues may be affecting two men who were injured in a car crash in New Haven County. According to reports, the 28-year-old driver and 25-year-old passenger were the only occupants of a vehicle that went off the roadway and down a ravine. The vehicle also struck a chain link fence and two trees. It was unclear what may have caused the vehicle to leave the road.
The incident, which occurred in Oxford, resulted in both individuals suffering serious injuries. At the time of the report, the driver was still in the intensive care unit, and the passenger had been moved from ICU but was still hospitalized. Details on the exact injuries they suffered were not given in the report. It was noted that fundraisers had been started for both men in efforts to cover medical costs and other expenses.
While donations from caring individuals may help cover some costs, the financial repercussions of a car accident can be far-reaching and long-lasting. The passenger involved in this New Haven County incident may face more difficulties than a fundraiser could cover. It may be in his interests to consider his legal options for seeking compensation through a personal injury claim against the driver considered at fault for the crash.
