Millions Recovered For Injured People

Auto-pedestrian accident severely injures man near his home

A pedestrian accident can happen at any time and anywhere throughout Connecticut. People might believe they are safe in certain areas, but there are incidents that show that is not always the case. For example, a person might think they are safe when they go outside near their own home. But a car can crash into them without warning. Regardless of where it happens, a pedestrian accident can cause long-term damage and death for the victim.

A man who was near his home at approximately 12:45 a.m. was hit by a car. The driver of the black Lexus stayed at the scene of the crash, called for emergency assistance, and is cooperating with the investigation. The victim was hit and carried on the vehicle before falling to the pavement. He was taken to the hospital where his injuries were reported as grave. He had trauma to his face, and his right hip was fractured. The driver was given a field sobriety test and passed. The investigation is continuing.

Pedestrians are not provided with the same protections as people who are in a vehicle. A crash between a vehicle and a pedestrian inevitably leads to serious injuries such as broken bones, internal trauma, head injuries, back injuries and more. Even if the accident victim is lucky enough to survive, there is a significant chance that there will be medical expenses, lost time at work and other problems. When the driver remains at the scene, it is an example of the person taking responsibility for what occurred, but that does not change the problems the accident victim faces. With the number of long-term challenges facing a person who was hit by a vehicle, it is crucial to be aware of whether it is possible to seek compensation.

A man who was outside his home was hit by a car and carried before falling on the ground. He suffered injuries that were said to be severe and was hospitalized. His future still uncertain. The investigation as to how and why the crash occurred is continuing. This incident serves as an example of how serious pedestrian accidents can be. Those involved in an auto-pedestrian crash may want to determine whether compensation is available to cover their losses.
