Connecticut wrongful death: Man killed in single car crash

A single-vehicle car crash claimed the life of one individual on Christmas morning. This incident is said to have occurred in Meriden. As the victim was a passenger in the vehicle, his surviving family members may be able to pursue wrongful death actions in a Connecticut civil court in an effort to seek compensation for their losses.

According to a local report, a 36-year-old male was thrown from the car he was riding in when the driver lost control and struck a bridge support. The driver, an adult passenger in the front seat and an infant -- the daughter of the deceased -- were all transported to Hartford Hospital. Their injuries were minor in nature, and they were treated and discharged.

It is unknown if the driver, who is said to be a teenager, will face any criminal charges for the incident. Authorities are still in the process of investigating this crash. They are asking any witnesses to the event, which occurred on I-691 near Exit 5, to come forward.

Unfortunately, single-vehicle accidents occur with great frequency. When injuries or deaths result from such incidents, the drivers or vehicle owners -- if different -- may be held found responsible for any damages sustained by the victims or their surviving family members. Personal injury or wrongful death claims, if successfully navigated in a Connecticut civil court, may be awarded monetary judgments for any and all recoverable losses sustained. These may be economic in nature -- such as medical expenses, funeral expenses and lost wages and benefits, -- or they may be non-economic losses -- such as loss of consortium and pain and suffering,
