Car accident causes injuries, claims life of driver

On Behalf of | Dec 31, 2020 | Personal Injury

Some of the worst news a family could receive is learning that a loved one has been injured in a car crash. This news can be even more difficult to handle during the holidays when many people are traveling to celebrate with loved ones. Unfortunately, increased traffic during this time of year can often give way to a higher chance of being involved in a car accident.

It was recently reported that a two-vehicle collision in New London County had unfortunate outcomes. The incident occurred when a driver traveling north failed to remain in the correct lane. His vehicle traveled over the center dividing line and into the path of a vehicle in the southbound lane, where they collided.

The driver of the northbound vehicle suffered fatal injuries in the incident. The two individuals in the southbound vehicle both suffered injuries and were taken from the scene to an area hospital. The report did not detail what types of injuries they suffered or the severity of those injuries. It was noted that authorities were still investigating the crash.

When individuals are injured in a car accident caused by another driver, they face a complex situation. When the driver considered at fault also dies in the crash, surviving victims can face additional complications. However, the parties injured in this New London County crash still have legal options for seeking compensation for resulting damages. They may be able to file personal injury claims against the estate of the driver considered at fault depending on the exact circumstances.
