Fairfield – Settlement For Crash Injuries

A man from Stratford who was permanently disabled after sustaining serious crash injuries has accepted a settlement last Wednesday.

35-year-old Christopher Colon was driving his car on the southbound side of Interstate 95 crossing Fairfield back on October 3, 2016 when he was hit from behind by a car that had also been hit from behind by a van. Antonio Sodaro from Milford was driving the truck. Colon sustained serious back injuries in the crash which eventually resulted in a 20 percent permanent disability of his lumbar spine (lower back). A settlement of $741,000 was reached before Colon’s lawsuit against Sodaro was about to go to trial in a Bridgeport Superior Court.

This settlement exemplifies how expert legal counsel and Connecticut laws can help protect our rights as motorists in cases of personal injuries. It pays to take note of this ruling if ever these types of incidents happen to us or our loved ones.

Fairfield – Metal Spike Hits Car

A metal spike thrown by a lawn mower hits a car in Fairfield this past weekend.

A car driving along Lockwood Road in Fairfield was suddenly hit by a metal spike apparently thrown by a commercial lawn mower, The object entered the vehicle thru the rear window glass, narrowly missing two toddlers (2-year-old and 3-year-old) securely fastened in the back seats of the vehicle. Officials said the ten-inch pipe missed the faces of both toddlers by only inches. Still, both toddlers sustained injuries due to the broken glass and were tended to by rescue personnel.

Fairfield – Truck Accident On I-95

A flatbed truck was involved in an accident in Fairfield yesterday morning.

At approximately 10:14 a.m., the truck was running southbound on I-95 crossing Fairfield, between exits 19 and 20, when the accident occurred. Authorities quickly arrived at the scene to assist. The jackknifed truck covered two lanes of the highway, while its cabin was up against a road barrier. Injuries were reported by officials. The southbound side of I-95 remained congested for about an hour before finally clearing up. The identity of the truck driver and other details of the incident have yet to be disclosed by officials.

Single-vehicle accidents on highways, particularly those involving large vehicles, can be challenging to assess. Vehicle defects can be considered by authorities as possible causes if driver negligence or DUI can be eliminated as a possibility. That said, injuries caused by product/vehicle defects can entitle aggrieved parties to compensation with the help of expert legal counsel.
