Car accidents: head-on collision leaves one driver dead

Most times when people get into their cars to go about their daily lives they don't consider the potential danger they face. In fact, the last thing on their minds is the fact they may encounter or become part of car accidents. Even safe drivers may cross paths with negligent or reckless drivers on their way to work. This simple fact is a grim reminder that even when a driver follows the rules of the road and pays close attention to his surroundings, he is still subject to the reckless and negligent actions of those who share the road with him.

A early-morning commute hour crash recently claimed the life of a Connecticut man. The man was traveling northbound on State Street in Hamden when he allegedly crossed into southbound traffic and his car collided with another. The Fire Department had to extricate both drivers from their vehicles.

Both men were transported to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries. One man was unfortunately pronounced dead at the hospital. The other driver reportedly did not sustain life-threatening injuries. Connecticut police were still investigating the accident at last report and had reached out to the public for any witnesses to come forward with information.

Most fatal car accidents take a huge toll on the surviving family members, both emotionally and financially. If a driver's actions are proven to be negligent, a family could choose to file a wrongful death claim against that driver. From final expenses and loss of companionship to pain and suffering, there are many kinds of damages that may be awarded to a family left grieving after such a tragedy.
