Cromwell – Highway Vehicle Accident

Authorities blocked off a portion of the highway in Cromwell following an accident yesterday afternoon.

State and local officials responded to Exit 20N (I-91) on the southbound side of Route 9 following reports of a vehicle crash in the area. According to officials, an unspecified number of vehicles was involved in a crash that resulted in injuries, prompting emergency crews to cordon off the scene. Firefighters and paramedics were requested and have since tended to motorists involved in the incident. It took longer than usual to clear the crash site due to various circumstances surrounding the accident. Initial reports came in at approximately 3:48 p.m., and it took road crews about an hour and a half to clear all lanes. The crash is still under investigation.

Officials will always process crash sites with the intention of protecting the safety of everyone involved, as well as giving investigators the opportunity to collect as much evidence as they can. Because of these and other factors, the amount of time needed to clear crash sites can vary, and is usually an indicator of the severity of a particular incident. These things said, if authorities discover reckless behavior or negligence in any of these cases, injured parties can consult legal experts to explore avenues that can help them find closure after these typically traumatic events.

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.

Berlin – Highway Accident Update

State officials just released an update related to last Wednesday’s highway crash in Berlin.

Authorities have identified the victim of the crash that occurred on the southbound side of Route 9. 54-year-old Marie Ahern of Middletown was struck and killed by a vehicle near Exit 23 (Christian Lane). Officials have yet to describe the circumstances surrounding the accident — the case is still under investigation. Authorities are still collecting evidence and are asking anyone with info about the incident to contact them as soon as possible.

In some situations, authorities need testimony from witnesses to accurately identify crash culprits/causes. Because of this, officials would always encourage the public, particularly those with relevant info, to come forward and help solve various cases. Bringing culprits to justice is not the only benefit. Establishing accountability can also allow accident victims to seek damages in some cases, helping them find closure after these traumatic events.

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.

Berlin – Hit-And-Run On The Highway

State and local officials are currently investigating a highway crash in Berlin that occurred yesterday morning.

According to officials, at approximately 10:23 a.m., a still-unidentified car was driving south on Route 9 when it hit a pedestrian near Exit 23. Instead of stopping, the driver of the car fled the area and has yet to be located. The victim sustained critical injuries in the incident and was pronounced dead soon after. Authorities are still investigating the crash and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or may have seen the suspect to contact the state or local police as soon as possible.

In practically all scenarios, instances of hit-and-run will only aggravate cases against drivers who are suspected of hitting other motorists or pedestrians. As victims of suspected reckless or negligent behavior, parties injured in these incidents may have the option of filing for damages under appropriate circumstances and with the help of expert legal counsel.

Old Saybrook – Accident With Entrapment

A vehicle rolled over on the highway in Old Saybrook last Thursday evening.

Emergency crews responded to reports of the crash and discovered one vehicle that had rolled over on Route 9, in the area of Exit 2. One person was trapped inside the vehicle following the accident and had to be extricated by firefighters. The victim was then transported to the hospital for treatment. The identity and status of the injured motorist have yet to be disclosed by officials pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. Authorities are asking anyone who may have witnessed it to contact them as soon as possible.

In many instances, officials withhold the identities of crash victims because they need to contact next of kin or a subsequent investigation requires it. In either scenario, authorities will eventually release as much information as necessary. What’s important to take note of are the options that motorists can be entitled to if these incidents are found to be caused by DUI, reckless behavior or negligence. In these cases, talking to legal experts can help victims weigh these options.

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.

Cromwell – Highway Truck Accident

A truck accident resulted in delays in Cromwell yesterday.

At around 5:06 p.m., a truck driven by a still unidentified driver was traveling on the northbound side of Route 9 when figured in an accident about a quarter of a mile past Exit 19 (West Street/Route 372). Emergency responders, including EMS crews, quickly arrived at the scene to help motorists affected by the crash. Officials have yet to specify the number of people and vehicles involved in the incident — the crash is still under investigation. Authorities will release updates when necessary.

State and local officials handling this case have yet to release details informing us of the severity of this incident. Suffice it to say, once they finish their investigation, they should be able to establish liability in this situation. This is important so that injured parties involved in the incident can explore options that will help them, not just seek justice, but also find closure.

Berlin – Highway Off-Ramp Accident

Highway traffic in Berlin was affected after a vehicle accident yesterday.

At around 5:20 p.m., local officials received reports of a crash on the northbound lanes of Route 9, in the area of Exit 21 (Route 372/Mill Street).

No updates have been provided yet regarding the extent of injuries and damage. This post will be updated once authorities release more information.

As is always the case, officials have priorities in handling road accidents, particularly on major thoroughfares. The safety of all motorists is the primary concern, followed by accurately establishing accountability. The second point is relevant to victims of accidents as it allows them various options that will help them seek justice and find closure, particularly when it comes to damage/compensation claims.

Old Saybrook – Two Hospitalized After Highway Incident

Two people were seriously injured in Old Saybrook last Sunday.

The accident occurred on the northbound side of Route 9 (Chester Bowles Highway), between exits 2 and 3. A vehicle with two occupants was traveling on that route when it hit a deer that suddenly crossed the highway. According to local officials, the two occupants of the vehicle were injured in the crash and were immediately transported to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Other details pertinent to the incident have yet to be provided by authorities.

Highway accidents have to be studied thoroughly to establish accountability/liability. While the cause of this specific incident might seem obvious enough, authorities will still investigate all possibilities before making a conclusion. Studying these unusual cases is important because if ever we or our loved ones are involved in similar incidents, we will be aware of our rights and options as motorists.

Cromwell – Motorcycle Crash Results In Serious Injury

A motorcycle crash in Cromwell last Saturday evening causes serious injuries.

The accident occurred on Route 9 (Chester Bowles Highway), between exits 19 and 16, at approximately 8:15 p.m. According to state police, a rider sustained a broken leg after a motorcycle crash. Officials had to close the left lane of the road temporarily. The identity of the motorcyclist and other relevant information have yet to be disclosed by authorities.

Single-vehicle accidents on major thoroughfares, particularly involving motorcycles, can result in serious injuries to people. Determining the causes of these incidents is important because there have been instances in the past where product/vehicle defects have caused injuries. In such cases, aggrieved parties can file for damage/compensation claims with the help of expert legal counsel.

New Britain – Route 9 Crash

Late Saturday afternoon, a crash was reported in New Britain.

Connecticut State Police responded to a crash report on the northbound side of Route 9 crossing New Britain. Authorities reported that the incident occurred between exits 28 and 29. The police have yet to report on injuries sustained by any driver or passenger, or how many vehicles were involved in the accident. The accident scene has since been cleared.

Highway accidents happen quite frequently, and the high speed involved usually causes serious injuries to passengers and major damage to vehicles. Identifying culprits and establishing fault are very important, particularly when negligence, DUI or reckless driving are involved. Other parties can file personal injury claims, and with the help of legal experts, they can move on from these unfortunate, traumatizing events.
