New Haven – Accident Involving ATV

A motorist was seriously injured in an intersection crash in New Haven last Thursday.

Authorities dispatched emergency crews to the intersection of Legion Avenue and Ella T Grasso Boulevard (Route 10) at around 5:00 p.m. after receiving reports of a crash. According to responders, a male motorist operating a quad ATV collided with another vehicle. The rider sustained serious injuries and was found lying on the road. The victim was quickly attended to by EMS personnel. The driver of the second vehicle remained at the scene and has cooperated with officials. The crash is still under investigation. Authorities have yet to identify the victim and will do so, as well as release other pertinent information, when appropriate.

Collisions frequently occur between small vehicles (ATVs and motorcycles) and other vehicles, and these tend to result in serious injuries and heavy damage. Identifying the causes of these unfortunate events is, obviously, an important goal for accident investigators. That said, motorists injured in these scenarios will have various options at their disposal if authorities discover DUI, reckless behavior or negligence. Victims can discuss these options with legal experts so that their best course of action can be determined.

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.

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.

Hamden – Damages Filed In Pedestrian Incident

A damage claim has just been filed by the husband of a pedestrian crash victim in Hamden.

Edward Wilczynski from North Haven just filed a case in connection to a July 28, 2018 road incident that killed his wife, 50-year-old Kristin Wilczynski. The accident occurred on Dixwell Avenue, near its intersection with Old Dixwell Avenue. Wilczynski was trying to cross the road when she was hit by a vehicle driven by then 28-year-old Courtney Bothwell, also from North Haven. Wilczynski sustained serious injuries in the crash and was brought to Yale-New Haven hospital by EMS crews, but died soon after. Bothwell was arrested last January and charged with negligent homicide, among other charges. According to police reports, Bothwell claimed she looked away from the road to tend to a puppy that was inside her vehicle when the crash happened. Edward Wilczynski’s recent filing has cited reckless and negligent behavior as factors that initiated the crash. The case is still ongoing.

This recent filing highlights just one example of various legal avenues victims of road incidents have at their disposal when involved in these situations. Taking note of these incidents is important because if we or our loved ones are ever involved in similar cases, we will be aware of our options.

Hamden – Multi-Vehicle Crash With Injuries

Six vehicles were involved in a crash in Hamden yesterday.

The pileup occurred on Dixwell Avenue (Route 10) in front of the town high school. Emergency crews had to extricate four people from their vehicles. Five people have since been transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries. Authorities have now started investigating the cause of the crash. Further updates, including the identities of those involved, will be released as soon as officials collect them.

Multiple-vehicle accidents can be challenging to investigate — culprits/causes are not readily obvious in most cases. That said, investigators will always study all possibilities so that they can accurately establish liability. It’s also important to know that if any form of negligence or reckless behavior can be associated with these incidents, injured parties may be entitled to compensation with the help of expert 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.

Hamden – Police Chase Results In Damage And Injuries

A police chase that started in New Haven ended with a crash in Hamden yesterday afternoon.

Shortly after noon, New Haven police were alerted to a possible crime and tried to apprehend a suspect who fled in a car. The vehicle crossed into Hamden, with local police continuing the chase until the suspect vehicle crashed into an SUV near the intersection of Dixwell Avenue (Route 10) and Benham Street. Officials eventually discovered three occupants in the suspect vehicle. Emergency crews transported one person to the hospital for treatment of injuries. The incident is still being investigated and authorities are looking for possible leads or witnesses who can provide more information.

While it might seem that all the occupants of the suspect vehicle in this case could be liable, investigators still need to consider all possible angles before establishing accountability. This is particularly important because if negligence is discovered, and injured parties are absolved of any ill intent, they can file for damages/compensation under proper circumstances.

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.

Avon – Rollover Crash Victim Identified

The victim of a rollover crash in Avon last Friday evening has now been identified.

A few minutes after 7:00 p.m. last Friday, a 2002 black Dodge Durango driven by 41-year-old Steven Oulette of Bristol was traveling on Waterville Road (Route 10) when it swerved off the road into a guardrail before falling down a steep embankment. Oulette was thrown off his vehicle in the crash and sustained fatal injuries. He was immediately transported to UConn Medical Center by emergency crews where he was pronounced dead. The incident is still being investigated by authorities. They are asking anyone who may have information about the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

Officials will continue to investigate single-vehicle accidents like this until they eliminate all possible causes. This is important because there have been cases in the past where product/vehicle defects have caused injuries to motorists. If negligence is discovered in any of these cases, injured parties can file for compensation/damages under appropriate circumstances.

Avon – Fatal Injuries After Crash

A crash in Avon last Friday evening results in serious injuries.

The incident occurred on Route 10 (Waterville Road) and involved one vehicle. According to authorities, a car rolled over, fatally injuring its occupant. The road was cordoned off for several hours while officials cleared the scene. Additional details have yet to be disclosed by authorities pending an investigation. More information will be released when they become available.

There have been many instances of product/vehicle defects causing single-vehicle accidents in the past, so investigators will always consider this angle in studying road incidents. That said, it pays to be aware of our legal rights/options if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations in the future.

Hamden – Senior Hit By Car

A man was struck by a car while crossing Dixwell Avenue in Hamden last Sunday.

74-year-old Robert Sheard was crossing Dixwell Avenue (Route 10) riding his mobility scooter when he was hit by a car directly in front of the Miller Memorial Library. Responders arrived at the scene at around 1 p.m. The vehicle that hit Sheard was driven by a 69-year-old resident of Middletown. Sheard sustained major injuries and was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital. He later died due to his injuries. Hamden Police are still investigating the incident. They are requesting anyone with information about the accident to contact them immediately.

Pedestrian accidents like this one will be investigated to promptly determine if DUI, reckless behavior or negligence can be considered as possible causes, in which case aggrieved parties or their families can file for compensation claims.
