Milford – Highway Accident

Authorities reported a highway crash in Milford late yesterday evening.

The incident occurred on the southbound lanes of I-95 crossing Milford, about a third of a mile past Exit 39A (Route 1). Emergency crews were quickly dispatched to the area to attend to those injured in the crash. Officials reported the incident at approximately 10:17 p.m. and were able to clear the scene around an hour later. Authorities have yet to disclose the identities of those involved and will do so as more information becomes available.

Evening accidents can be challenging to investigate and clear. That said, authorities will always exhibit due diligence in responding to these situations. This is noteworthy because identifying the causes of these accidents can help officials make highway driving safer for everyone. Establishing accountability will also allow injured/aggrieved parties for file for damages if their legal counsel deems it appropriate.

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.

Milford – Highway Vehicle Fire

A car caught fire on the highway in Milford last Tuesday.

Authorities received reports of the incident and responded at approximately 12:02 p.m. The accident occurred on I-95 crossing Milford, at the exit 40 (Old Gate Lane) off-ramp. Injuries were reported after a vehicle caught fire. Emergency crews quickly cordoned off the area and attended to those involved in the incident. Officials have yet to identify those involved/injured pending an investigation. Updates will be provided when appropriate.

Investigators study vehicle fires thoroughly to determine if product defects could be a factor. Suffice it to say, any form of negligence can be grounds for filing damage/compensation claims. Legal experts can discuss these options with victims or their families.

Milford – Motorist Rescued From Burning Car

A motorist was seriously hurt in an accident in Milford last Saturday evening.

Authorities received reports of a car crash on West River Street, near Wolf Harbor Road, and discovered a car that reportedly swerved off the pavement, hitting a tree before bursting into flames. The driver of the vehicle sustained serious injuries in the crash and was able to slowly leave the burning car. Witnesses at the scene, Jake Tymon and Mark Bernier, took action and pulled the victim away from the vehicle. The victim was subsequently brought to a local hospital for treatment, while fire crews were able to extinguish the fire. The identity of the victim has yet to be disclosed pending an investigation. Updates will be provided when appropriate.

Single-vehicle accidents with no immediately apparent causes have to be investigated for possible product/vehicle defects. Of course, investigators will always study all possibilities in any case. It’s important to note that if any form of negligence is discovered, aggrieved parties may have the option of filing for damages with guidance from their legal counsel.

Milford – Hit-And-Run Driver Charged With DUI

A suspect who fled an accident scene in Milford last month has now been charged by authorities.

44-year-old Miguel Cardenas of Webster Street was involved in a crash at the intersection of Hazelwood and Bridgeport (Route 1) Avenues that resulted in serious vehicle damage and physical injuries. Instead of staying, Cardenas fled the scene. He was arrested last week in connection to that incident and is now facing charges of evading responsibility and DUI.

This case highlights how state and local laws protect motorists’ safety and how authorities enforce them. We need to be aware of our rights as motorists if ever we are involved in similar cases in the future.

Milford – Hit-And-Run Suspect Apprehended

Milford authorities were led on a high-speed chase before apprehending a suspect last Sunday evening.

The incident occurred on New Haven Avenue a few minutes before 11:00 p.m. West Haven Police contacted Milford officials regarding a driver who left the scene of a crash with minor injuries in West Haven and was headed towards Milford. Officials identified and tried to apprehend the suspect near the New Haven Avenue and Old Gate Lane intersection but the driver kept on moving, behaving erratically throughout the incident. He eventually stopped near the New Haven Avenue and Buckingham Avenue intersection where he was taken into custody. 31-year-old Joseph Skehan currently faces charges of violating his probation, reckless driving, engaging police in a pursuit and interfering with an officer.

Taking note of this and other similar cases can be useful, particularly when studying scenarios that entitle aggrieved parties to file for damages/compensation. Hit-and-run incidents only strengthen cases against suspects who are accountable for accidents that result in injuries.

The accident occurred on Bridgeport Avenue (Route 714). 22-year-old Walter Kiernan was riding his scooter when he collided with an SUV. He sustained serious injuries in the crash but was eventually pronounced dead when emergency crews arrived at the scene. The driver and passenger of the SUV stayed at the scene and were not injured. Authorities are investigating the cause of the crash and will disclose more information when appropriate.

Milford – Man Charged After Hitting Police Officer

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

At approximately 4:00 a.m. last Sunday, Milford Police received reports of a person with erratic behavior at the intersection of Anderson Avenue and Ashwood Road. 31-year-old Colin Webster was driving along Ashwood Road, reportedly swearing at residents and exhibiting unusual driving behavior. Respondents were trying to apprehend Webster when he struck an officer and tried spitting on other officials. Eventually, authorities were able to take him into custody. He is now facing charges of assault, attempted assault, interfering with an officer and second-degree breach of peace.

Injuries caused by people who exhibit unusual or negligent behavior can be grounds for a personal injury claim. Under appropriate circumstances, and with the help of expert legal counsel, aggrieved parties have this option.
