Millions Recovered For Injured People

Morning car-pedestrian accident sends man to hospital

| Dec 27, 2018 | Pedestrian Accidents |

In Bridgeport and throughout Connecticut, it is not unusual for people to be in a rush to get to their destination. This can make the roads dangerous not just for drivers, but for pedestrians too. Because pedestrians are essentially at the mercy of vehicles and functioning under the belief that drivers will adhere to traffic laws, be cautious and yield to them, they can suddenly find their entire lives upended by a car-pedestrian accident. Since the aftermath of such a crash can be so damaging, a lawsuit is frequently needed to recover sufficient compensation to cover for all that was lost.

A morning pedestrian accident sent a man to the hospital. The accident happened at approximately 6:30 a.m. According to the investigation, a vehicle was entering a parking lot in the back of what used to be the Connecticut Post. The car was heading west when the crash happened. The driver stayed at the site of the crash and was being cooperative with law enforcement. Later in the day, it was reported that the pedestrian was in stable condition at the hospital. The man still had what was described as serious injuries. The investigation is continuing.

A pedestrian accident can happen anywhere. A person can be walking in a clearly defined crosswalk, be walking on the sidewalk, or even be sitting in an establishment or their own home when a car crashes into them. The reality of a vehicle hitting a person inevitably results in broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord damage, cuts and more. The injured person might miss time at work, need a long-term hospital stay, be forced to get a variety of treatments, and get help with even the most basic tasks. Before accepting a settlement from an insurance company, the injured person and his or her family must consider all they have lost and discuss a case with a lawyer.

A vehicle that was entering a parking lot crashed into a pedestrian, sending him to the hospital. Although the driver is cooperating and the injured man is expected to survive, it is vital that he understands his rights to compensation for his serious injuries through a legal filing. A law firm that is experienced in pedestrian accidents can give guidance and advice in a case.
