Milford – Vehicle Swerves Off Highway

A vehicle swerved off the highway and into the woods in Milford early Friday morning.

At approximately 12:09 a.m., authorities were alerted to a crash on Merritt Parkway (Route 15) and immediately sent road crews to the accident scene. According to reports, a vehicle carrying a still unspecified number of motorists swerved off the highway near Exit 54, crashing deep into the woods. Responders found the vehicle with all airbags deployed and immediately started extricating people trapped inside. Medical personnel were quickly called in to tend to those injured. Based on evidence gathered so far, no other vehicle was involved in the incident. The case is still under investigation, and officials are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact them as soon as possible.

There have been many cases in the past where injuries were caused by product/vehicle defects, so this possibility is always explored, among other factors. Whatever the outcome, if investigators discover reckless behavior or negligence, victims of these events may have options at their disposal. Talking to legal experts should help them understand what those options are.

Fairfield – Highway Crash With Injuries

Emergency crews responded to a highway crash in Fairfield yesterday evening.

At around 6:49 p.m., authorities arrived on Route 15, near Exit 44, to assist motorist injured in a crash involving a still unspecified number of vehicles. The crash resulted in delays stretching back to Exit 42. Medical personnel have since tended to everyone affected in the incident, and the area has since been cleared of any obstructions. Officials have yet to identify anyone in the incident pending an investigation into its cause. Updates will be provided as soon as more information is released.

Rush-hour incidents on highways tend to result in delays and a higher risk of additional accidents. Because of these factors, authorities would always focus on clearing crash sites as quickly as possible. Of course, they will always allot enough time for investigators to do their work as assigning liability will always be a priority for them. This is also important to parties injured in these accidents because, in cases of negligence, they can be entitled to damages as determined by legal experts.

Westport – Rush-Hour Highway Accident

A rush-hour crash occurred in Westport yesterday morning.

The incident occurred on the southbound lanes of Route 15, about a third of a mile before Exit 41 (Route 33/Wilton Road). Emergency responders arrived in the area at around 7:38 a.m. and discovered an accident that resulted in injuries. Officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles and motorists involved in the incident but have already accounted for and assisted everyone affected by the crash. A portion of the highway was closed following the incident, and it took road crews about an hour and a half to process and clear the site. This post will be updated when authorities release more information.

Following protocol, emergency crews are required to cordon off accident sites to allow them to assist people involved in these incidents, and allow investigators to study and collect evidence that will help identify crash causes/culprits. It pays to be aware of these protocols/processes so that we know what our options are if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar situations in the future.

Stratford – Highway Vehicle Accident

A vehicle accident closed a section of the highway in Stratford yesterday.

At around 4:58 p.m., emergency crews responded to the northbound lanes of Route 15 after receiving reports of a crash in the area. According to responders, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in an accident about a quarter of a mile before Exit 54 (Milford Connector) that resulted in injuries. Medical personnel quickly attended to everyone affected by the incident, while other crews started cleanup operations. All lanes were cleared less than an hour later. Officials have yet to identify anyone involved in the crash pending an investigation. Updates will be provided as soon as they become available.

Promptly clearing accident sites on highways is always an important objective for emergency responders. They do this without compromising on another important goal: identifying crash causes accurately. This point is particularly important to us motorists because if ever we are injured in similar situations, establishing accountability can help us seek justice and, under ideal circumstances, file for compensation/damages.

New Canaan – Heavy Delays After Highway Crash

A highway vehicle accident caused heavy delays in New Canaan yesterday morning.

At approximately 8:47 a.m., authorities received reports of a crash on the southbound lanes of Route 15 and immediately dispatched crews to the area. They discovered two vehicles that had figured in a crash near Exit 38, resulting in injuries. Fire and EMS crews were quickly called in to assist everyone involved in the incident. The crash closed the right lane of the highway, and this resulted in massive delays stretching back to Exit 40. All lanes have since been cleared. The accident is currently under investigation and the identities of motorists affected have yet to be disclosed. This post will be updated as more information comes in.

This incident demonstrates the collateral effects of highway accidents, mainly delays around crash sites. That said, the safety of all motorists will always be the priority of authorities, as well as identifying crash causes/culprits. The second point is noteworthy because if officials discover negligence in any of these cases, injured parties may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate 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.

Wethersfield – Rush-Hour Highway Accident

A crash resulted in partial highway closure in Wethersfield yesterday.

The incident occurred on the southbound side of Route 15, about half a mile after Exit 85 (Route 99/Wethersfield Avenue). At approximately 5:22 p.m., emergency crews responded to the area and quickly cordoned off the scene to allow medical personnel to tend to motorists injured in the crash. An investigation was immediately started, while other road crews started cleanup operations. The scene was cleared less than an hour later, though the crash is still under investigation. More information, including the identities of people affected by the incident, will be provided as soon as they become available.

As should always be the case, highway accidents are immediately cordoned off to allow various crews to assist motorists injured or otherwise affected in these scenarios. This will also allow investigators to safely collect evidence that will help them establish liability in all of these incidents. The last point is particularly important because identifying causes/culprits might allow aggrieved parties to file for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the approval of expert legal counsel.

New Haven – Highway Motorcycle Accident

A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a highway crash in New Haven early yesterday morning.

The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of Route 15, near Exit 59. At around 5:45 a.m., 29-year-old Joao Maiolino was riding his 2009 Harley Davidson northbound on Route 15 when a car struck him. 41-year-old Kimberly Ann Slosek was driving her vehicle on the southbound side when she suddenly attempted to use an emergency u-turn slot. She struck Maiolino’s motorcycle when she entered the northbound lanes. Maiolino sustained serious injuries in the collision and was immediately transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital, while Slosek refused medical support. The crash is currently being investigated. Authorities are asking possible witnesses to contact them as soon as possible.

The details already available in this case seem to indicate reckless behavior. That said, investigators will look at all possible angles before making a conclusion. If they establish negligence or reckless behavior, injured parties in this and other similar incidents may have the option of filing for damages as determined by their legal counsel.
