Danbury – Driver Who Caused Injuries Arrested

A Danbury man who is suspected of causing injuries while driving his car was arrested yesterday.

On April 22, at approximately 4:40 p.m., 38-year-old Edgar Patricio Farfan-Lazso of Danbury was driving his car westbound on Franklin Street when he crashed into a utility pole, breaking the post and damaging the attached transformer. He and his passenger were injured in the crash and were transported to the hospital for treatment. Farfan-Lazso’s car was also severely damaged in the incident. Upon the arrival of authorities, he claimed vehicle malfunction. But witnesses have reported that he was overspeeding. He is now facing charges of driving with a suspended license, failure to drive right, driving without insurance and overspeeding.

There are many factors that cause these types of accident. That said, if negligence can be established, people who are injured because of these incidents are entitled, under appropriate circumstances, to file compensation/damage claims.

Stafford – Multiple Charges Filed Against Man

A man from Stafford was charged by authorities for multiple offenses last Friday.

18-year-old Andrew Russano was involved in several road incidents that led to officials charging him on multiple counts. He’s been charged with disorderly conduct, third-degree criminal mischief and third-degree assault in connection with a May 7 incident on Randall Road that resulted in injuries. He’s also facing a charge of disorderly conduct related to an incident on County Road back on May 14.

Connecticut laws are very strict when it comes to protecting the safety of everyone plying its roads. It follows then that personal injuries caused by suspects who are considered negligent or exhibiting reckless behavior can be strong grounds for filing compensation claims.

Stamford – Reckless Behavior Causes Injury

A woman has been charged with assault in Stamford after attacking a police officer last Sunday.

36-year-old Birgit Rojas-Ibanez from Astoria is currently facing an assault charge after she headbutted a police officer who was trying to arrest her. At around 8:00 p.m., authorities were called to a restaurant on Southfield Avenue. Apparently, Rojas-Ibanez was exhibiting reckless behavior while inside the establishment. As soon as local police arrested her, she headbutted one of the officers, causing bruising on the head. She has since been taken into custody and is scheduled to appear in court.

Middlebury – $1.9 Million Settlement For Crash Injuries

A woman seriously injured in a two-car collision in Middlebury is receiving $1.9 million as settlement.

Back in April 2018, 58-year-old Loreta Vaichus was driving her Toyota Corolla near the intersection of Middlebury Road (Route 64) and Spring Road when a BMW, driven by Christina Robinson, smashed into the right side of her car, severely damaging both vehicles. Robinson died from the collision. Vaichus sustained multiple organ and skeletal injuries, as well as swelling and bleeding of the brain. The accident kept her debilitated for many months after the incident. According to reports, Robinson was DUI when the crash occurred. The case filed by Vaichus centered around negligence on the part of Robinson’s employer, Good News Cafe, which the plaintiff claimed let her drink before leaving the establishment. Vaichus is still experiencing symptoms related to her injuries but has otherwise recovered substantially.

This case typifies how Connecticut laws protect people whose injuries are caused by DUI, negligence or general reckless behavior. It pays to study this and other similar cases. We need to be aware of our rights as motorists if ever we or our loved ones are involved in these types of incidents.

A man from Shelton was arrested in Milford yesterday and charged with assault.

Southington – Man Facing Charges After Incident

A local resident has been charged with cruelty to animals last Tuesday.

74-year-old Richard Tully has been charged by authorities related to a May 20 incident. A bulldog was left inside a car on a residential driveway located on Bristol Street. The ambient temperature was 83 degrees when respondents arrived at the scene. Witnesses reported that the animal has been waiting in the car for at least an hour when officials arrived. The bulldog was immediately transported to a veterinarian where it was diagnosed with heatstroke. It was treated and survived the ordeal.

Pets with registered owners are treated as property. As such and under appropriate circumstances, injuries sustained by these animals can entitle their owners to file compensation/damage claims. With the help of legal experts in this field, knowing our rights and understanding our options are important if ever our pets are involved in these types of incidents.

Bridgeport – Evening Crash Causes Injuries

Southington – Driver Sentenced After Road Injury

Last Monday, a motorist from Bristol was sentenced to prison related to a road crash that injured several people.

On November 11, 2017, 23-year-old Stephanie Matos was driving along the southbound side of Middle Street in Bristol with two passengers, a one-year-old and a five-year-old. She was reportedly swerving between lanes and lost control near ESPN Drive. Her car moved onto the opposite lane and collided with a car with two occupants. Her two young passengers and all occupants of the other vehicle sustained serious injuries in the crash. Officials who responded to the incident said Matos was found with marijuana in her car. She was eventually charged with possession of marijuana, overspeeding, third-degree assault, reckless driving, and seatbelt violations.

This particular case highlights the laws governing motorist safety in Connecticut. Aside from criminal cases that suspects could face, injuries that they cause to other parties could also make them liable to personal injury claims.
