After a fatal accident takes place, many individuals are often left looking for more information. Many times, it can take time for investigators to determine exactly what happened after a car or truck accident, but that information is often vital in many ways. If surviving family members of deceased victims feel that taking legal action could suit their circumstances, outcomes of crash investigations may play substantial roles in their claims.
Multiple individuals may be waiting for more information after a recent accident in Connecticut. Reports stated that the collision involved a car and a freight truck. The report did not provide details on how the crash may have occurred, but it was noted that one vehicle was off the road. The incident took place in Interstate 395 at around 1:45 a.m.
There were apparently two individuals in the car, and one of those parties suffered fatal injuries. The other person was seriously injured. The deceased individual was a passenger in the car, and he was reported as being 37 years old. The driver of the truck did not suffer any injuries as a result of the crash.
If the driver of the freight truck is considered responsible for the Connecticut truck accident, the family of the deceased victim and the injured driver of the car may have reason to file legal claims against that driver. Wrongful death and personal injury claims may apply to this case, depending on the outcomes of the investigation. Information on these claims may prove useful to parties considering their options for addressing the fatal event.
