Millions Recovered For Injured People

Elderly woman killed in fatal pedestrian accident

Connecticut pedestrians must be cognizant of traffic. However, some drivers are reckless, distracted, negligent or disregarding laws. This can lead to pedestrian accidents. When there is a pedestrian accident, it is compounded when the driver chooses to flee the scene, making it a hit-and-run. Those who have been injured or lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident should be aware of their rights to seek compensation in a lawsuit.

A woman was hit by a car as she left her assisted living facility for a walk. She was hit by a car as she crossed the street.

The woman, 75, suffered a fractured skull, broken hip and a broken femur. The driver fled the scene. She was taken to the hospital after the crash and placed in the ICU. She was later taken to the hospice unit and died several days later because of the injuries. Law enforcement is investigating the incident and seeking the driver.

Whether a fatal pedestrian accident claims a life, the aftermath is difficult for the family. A variety of issues can arise after such an incident, including funeral costs, lost income, lost companionship and more.

The medical costs and emotional impact can be long lasting. A hit-and-run compounds the issue. Having legal help to consider a lawsuit is important not just to file the case, but also to take part in the investigation to determine what happened.

In this accident, an elderly woman was killed when she went on her morning walk. As the investigation continues, the family is seeking help in finding the driver who hit and killed her. A lawyer can help with investigating the case and filing a lawsuit to be compensated.
