Southington – Crash On The Highway

An accident was reported on I-84 in Southington yesterday afternoon.

State and local officials were alerted to a crash on the eastbound lanes of I-84 and immediately sent emergency crews to the area. According to reports, the incident occurred about half a mile past Exit 31 and resulted in injuries. No word yet on the number of vehicles and motorists affected by the incident, though firefighters and paramedics were requested. To process the accident site safely, road crews blocked off a portion of the highway — all lanes were cleared about half an hour later. The crash is still under investigation, and authorities will release more information when appropriate.

Authorities will always respond to accident reports appropriately, and that means preparing for worst-case scenarios. This is noteworthy because as motorists, it’s good to know that officials have our backs when it comes to road safety. These things said, we also need to be aware of our rights and options if ever we are involved in any accident. In certain cases, injuries sustained can allow us to seek damages, particularly when culprits are suspected to exhibit reckless or negligent behavior.

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. The Connecticut attorneys with Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers can help you through this process, working to hold the responsible party accountable for the pain and suffering you have had to endure.

Southington – Intersection Crash Update

Authorities are still investigating last Saturday’s accident in Southington.

Officials investigating the intersection crash that claimed the life of 17-year-old Julia Bruno are asking possible witnesses or anyone with information about the incident to come forward and assist with their investigation. Bruno was killed when her Nissan Sentra crashed into a utility pole after colliding with a Honda Fit driven by 76-year-old Nancy Giudice of Plainfield. Giudice was not injured in the crash. The Southington Police Department continues to review the circumstances surrounding this incident and the evidence they have collected so far. Anyone with information may contact their office as soon as possible.

While authorities handling road-related accidents will always exhibit unquestionable dedication, in some cases they require the help of people who may have exclusive information about various incidents. Suffice it to say, once accountability has been established victims of these unfortunate situations, or their families, can seek the help of expert legal counsel to determine the best way of finding closure after these traumatic events.

Southington – Intersection Crash Victim Identified

Authorities have released more information about last Friday’s intersection crash in Southington.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Clark Street (Route 509) and Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike (Route 322) and involved two vehicles. 17-year-old Julia Bruno was driving her Nissan Sentra when, at approximately 10:18 p.m., she collided with another vehicle driven by 76-year-old Nancy Giudice. The collision forced Bruno’s Nissan off the roadway and into a utility pole. She sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead soon after. Giudice was reportedly not injured. The case is still under investigation and officials are asking anyone with information about the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

This unfortunate event highlights some of the circumstances/details that typically surround intersection collisions. Officials have yet to conclude their investigation and identify the cause/culprit. Suffice it to say, if they discover any form of negligence not associated with the victim, her family may have the option of filing for damages as determined by legal experts.

Southington – Prison Sentence For Injuring Woman

A woman was just sentenced in Southington last Tuesday for stealing a car and injuring its owner.

39-year-old Amy Florian was given a 30-day jail sentence for a plea bargain related to a July 2018 case where she stole another woman’s car after getting into an argument with her. The victim tried to stop the suspect but was subsequently dragged along the road for several feet, sustaining multiple injuries in the process. The terms of the plea bargain include a year in prison, to be suspended after 30 days served, and two years of probation. Florian will also shoulder the victim’s medical and property damage expenses during her probationary period.

Taking note of this and other similar cases inform us of our rights and options when injured in any road-related incident. Consulting an expert in this legal field can also be beneficial if ever we or our loved ones are involved in analogous situations.
