Car crashes can happen at almost any time and anywhere. People cause crashes for any number of reasons from feeling unwell and not paying attention to the road to texting and driving.
When crashes involve more than one vehicle, it’s much more likely that someone will get hurt or killed. The force of multiple vehicles multiplies the chances of getting hurt and having multiple injuries as a result of the impact.
Take, for example, this case involving multiple vehicles in Connecticut. The police have been investigating a three-vehicle crash in New Haven. According to the news from Aug. 12, one person was killed in the crash.
When the emergency team arrived at the scene, they discovered an individual who was seriously hurt. The victim did not make it to a hospital and was pronounced dead at the scene. Several additional ambulances took victims to a local hospital for treatment.
This crash took place at the intersection of Ella Grasso Boulevard and Derby Avenue. It’s not clear exactly what caused the collision.
After a crash like this one, the police need to perform an investigation. After they complete it, they can better determine who caused the accident and who should be marked as at fault in official reports.
As a family member of someone who was killed in a fatal crash, it’s important to know that you have a right to pursue a claim. The passing of your loved one is a painful experience, but there are avenues to obtain compensation, so you can focus on your health and family during this time.
