New Haven – Minor On Bike Injured By Vehicle

A juvenile biker was injured by a car in New Haven yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 5:00 p.m., authorities received reports of an accident on Fowler Street and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the area. According to officials, a minor was riding a bike on that road when he was hit by a passing vehicle. The victim sustained serious injuries and was unresponsive when EMS crews arrived. Authorities cordoned off the roadway between Amity Road and Frederick Street while they investigated the incident. The identities of those involved have yet to be released by officials. They will do so when appropriate.

Bicycle accidents almost always result in serious injuries, so identifying the culprits/causes of these incidents is imperative. In cases where negligence or reckless behavior can be established, victims or their families may have the option of filing for damages once they’ve discussed their case with their legal counsel.

New Haven – Fatality In Pedestrian Crash

A pedestrian was killed in New Haven early yesterday morning.

A few minutes before 4:00 a.m., authorities dispatched emergency crews to 662 Middletown Avenue (Route 17) after receiving reports of a pedestrian accident in the area. A 32-year-old man with critical injuries was found at the scene. The victim allegedly threw himself onto the path of a passing vehicle. The driver of the car that hit him immediately stopped. Residents in the area have complained about overspeeding on that roadway, and officials are currently looking at these complaints. The crash is currently under investigation. More information, including the identities of those involved, will be provided when appropriate.

Details already available in this case are presenting conflicting evidence related to the cause of the crash. That said, investigators will always study all possible angles in establishing liability in these scenarios. It’s important to point out that people injured in these incidents (or their families), if determined not to be responsible, have various options they can discuss with their legal counsel, including filing for damages.

New Haven – Fatal Pedestrian Accident

A pedestrian was hit by two vehicles in New Haven late Saturday evening.

Authorities responded to reports of an accident on Ella Grasso Boulevard (Route 10) and discovered a 42-year-old man who was killed after two vehicles hit him. The victim was immediately transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. One vehicle stayed at the accident scene; its driver has cooperated with officials. The second vehicle didn’t stop and fled the area. The crash is still being investigated. Authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the hit-and-run vehicle/suspect to contact them as soon as possible.

Pedestrian accidents are frequently deadly, and instances of hit-and-run will only aggravate cases against motorists involved in these incidents. It’s important that pedestrians are aware of their legal rights and options if ever they are involved in similar situations. In cases of pedestrian deaths, families of victims can consult legal experts to determine what they can do to find closure after these unfortunate events.

New Haven – Motorist Accepts Personal Injury Settlement

A road injury victim just accepted a settlement in New Haven.

Back in 2016, 48-year-old Marie Ann Acurantes was driving her 2016 Jeep on I-91 southbound, just before exit 19, when she was rear-ended by a 2007 Buick LaCrosse CX driven by Jennifer Vitello. Acurantes sustained multiple internal injuries in the collision. Since the incident, she had already incurred more than $90,000 in medical expenses and had lost a job opportunity because of her physical limitations. This recent career setback was the main factor that helped her legal counsel secure the settlement. To this day, she continues to require regular medical treatment. The recent settlement has granted her $365,000.

Motorists injured in road incidents; particularly those that involve negligence, DUI or reckless behavior; have options at their disposal. Under appropriate circumstances, and with the help of expert legal counsel, victims can file for damages/compensation and find closure after these traumatic events.

New Haven – Local Teen Killed In Hit-And-Run

A motorist has been charged in a hit-and-run incident in New Haven last Friday evening.

55-year-old Judy Gomez of East Haven has just been charged with evading responsibility in connection with an accident that seriously injured two teenagers. Gomez was traveling on the bridge between East and Stiles Streets when she hit a scooter carrying two riders. 18-year-old Christopher Franco was with a 15-year-old teen when they were hit by Gomez. Emergency crews immediately transported both teens to the hospital where Franco eventually died. Instead of staying, Gomez fled the scene. Witnesses saw her damaged vehicle make a turn onto Townsend Avenue. She was eventually apprehended by authorities. The incident is still being investigated and officials are asking other witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.

This case highlights some of the circumstances that surround most road accidents involving motorcycles/scooters. Incidents of hit-and-run can only aggravate cases against suspects/culprits. It’s important to note that victims of these accidents or their families have options at their disposal. Consulting legal experts can help us seek closure after these traumatic events.

New Haven – Hit-And-Run Suspect Sentenced

A suspect who hit two pedestrians in New Haven last April has just been sentenced to 45 days in jail.

The incident occurred at the intersection of Elm and High Streets back on April 15. 21-year-old Anthony Abate was driving his car in the area when he hit two girls. Abate had the green light at the time of the accident. According to witnesses, the victims were waved by another motorist to cross the road even though the stop sign just turned green. Abate did not notice this and subsequently hit the victims, causing injuries in the process. Court records showed that he panicked immediately after and fled the scene, instead of staying to assist the victims or to wait for authorities to arrive. He was arrested the same day and charged soon after.

The circumstances surrounding this case are complicated as the suspect was not necessarily at fault as far as obeying traffic signs is concerned. That said, instances of hit-and-run strengthen cases against suspects, and this example simply highlights the diligence that law enforcement members exhibit when dealing with any road-related incident.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life.

New Haven – Vehicle Crashes Into Maintenance Truck

A motorist crashed his/her car into a truck in New Haven late yesterday evening.

The crash was reported at approximately 10:10 p.m. and occurred on I-95 crossing New Haven, at exit 44. A vehicle rear-ended a truck supporting people doing maintenance work on the highway. Injuries were reported, and emergency crews have arrived to attend to everyone involved in the accident. Authorities have yet to release additional information about the incident and will do so when appropriate.

Evening driving is generally more dangerous to motorists, so identifying the causes of nighttime accidents is important to help reduce the chances of these incidents happening in the future. That said, if authorities discover reckless driving, DUI, product defects or negligence in any of these cases, injured parties can discuss their rights and options with their legal counsel.

If you or someone you care about was injured in an accident, you may need help navigating the complex challenges of paying for your medical bills, recouping your lost wages, and regaining your quality of life.

New Haven – Highway Accident With Injuries

An early morning accident happened in New Haven yesterday.

The incident occurred on the northbound side of I-95 crossing New Haven, between exits 44 and 46. Two center lanes were closed following the crash, causing moderate delays in the area. Injuries were reported by authorities, and emergency crews have since cleared the scene. The identities of those involved and other relevant information will be provided by authorities when appropriate.

The investigation and clearing of highway accidents closely depend on location and crash circumstances, so identifying the causes of these incidents promptly is imperative. Once culprits have been identified, and if negligence is involved, then injured parties can file for damage/compensation claims under proper circumstances.

New Haven – Interstate Accident

Two vehicles figured in a highway accident in New Haven last Wednesday.

The crash occurred a few minutes after 3:00 p.m. on the northbound side of I-91 crossing New Haven, between exits 6 and 8. Two left lanes were closed due to the crash that involved two vehicles, and injuries have been reported by authorities. The scene was cleared by emergency crews by 4:00 p.m. The incident is still being investigated and officials will release more information when they become available.

The general nature/location of highway incidents necessitate road closures and, in many cases, support from ancillary crews. Investigators are generally faced with constraints when working on these cases, so efficiently identifying accident culprits/causes is imperative. Having said that, if negligence is established in any of these incidents, injured parties can file for damages/compensation with the help of legal experts.

New Haven – Fatal Injuries After Crash

A woman was seriously injured in a road incident in New Haven early yesterday morning.

At approximately 4:15 a.m., authorities responded to reports of a crash on Peck Street, near its intersection with Ferry Street. A 46-year-old woman was found lying on the road, severely injured in what officials say could either be a pedestrian or vehicular accident. The victim was immediately transported to the hospital where she died a short time later. The incident is still being investigated, and the victim’s identity has yet to be released. Authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

Road incidents that result in injuries or deaths must be investigated thoroughly to determine if negligence or reckless behavior could be involved. If such factors are established, then affected parties, with the help of legal counsel, may file for damage/compensation claims.
