Car Accidents Are Common in Middletown

Middletown might only have roughly 48,000 residents, but it has big city car accidents. The state’s Crash Data Repository has collected statistics for 2020 to 2022. In these three years, Middletown has seen:

  • 3,874 total crashes involving 7,346 vehicles
  • 1,190 suspected minor injuries
  • 132 suspected major injuries
  • 25 fatalities

Remember, some of these “suspected minor injuries” will actually be quite disabling, causing pain and an inability to work. These accidents can also happen anywhere in town.

Our Car Accident Experience

Our broad experience allows us to advocate for those injured in many types of collisions, including:

  • Rear end collisions. A driver can rear end the car in front because they were driving too closely or were distracted from an electronic device.
  • Head on collisions. Two cars can collide head-on because one is going the wrong way, or a driver crosses the center line. Head-on collisions are commonly caused by fatigue, intoxication, and distraction.
  • Sideswipe accidents. One car can sideswipe another when passing or trying to merge onto the highway. Failure to yield is a common reason.
  • T-bone wrecks. This accident is also called a side-impact collision. One car crashes into the side of another, often at an intersection or in a parking lot.
  • Rollovers. Cars are not supposed to roll onto their side or hood, but it can happen when something trips the vehicle.
  • Blown tire accidents. A car is immediately uncontrollable when a tire blows because of a defect or because it is overinflated.
  • Hit and runs. Motorists have many challenges when the driver flees the scene. It is harder to seek compensation, but we can work with your uninsured motorist provider to make a claim.

Major Reasons for Car Accidents

Many accidents are caused by negligent driving. Motorists should use reasonable caution when driving on Middletown roads, but too many are careless. Some common examples of negligence are:

  • Texting and driving
  • Eating and driving
  • Zoning out
  • Distraction from loud music
  • Failing to use mirrors
  • Failing to yield
  • Driving too closely
  • Speeding
  • Failing to use turn signals
  • Negligent drivers are not responsible for all wrecks, however. Other causes include:
  • Defective tires, which can explode or fail when the tread separates.
  • Defective brakes, which might fail to stop the car in time.
  • Road hazards, such as debris left from road work or potholes which have not been filled.

In addition to the driver who hit you, you might bring a claim against a manufacturer, municipality, and sometimes other parties. This is one reason why you should work with a lawyer. We can identify all the parties who share blame for your crash.

Serious Injuries Deserve Real Compensation

Even at low speeds, car accidents can leave victims with serious, long-term injuries. At high speeds, car accidents often lead to permanent disability and sometimes death. We can assist someone suffering from:

  • Head and neck injury—common injuries include concussion, whiplash, compressed nerve, and other painful injuries.
  • Back injury—a back injury can lead to incomprehensible pain. Some common back injuries include back strain, herniated discs, or vertebral fractures.
  • Cuts or lacerations—cuts can become infected and lead to permanent scars, which are emotionally devastating when they occur on a person’s arms or face.
  • Burns—motorists suffer burns by fire or chemicals in a car accident, with serious burns requiring skin grafts and possibly amputation.
  • Spinal cord injury—any injury to the spinal cord will impair sensation and movement, possibly permanently.
  • Catastrophic injury—we have helped those injured by blindness, paralysis, and amputation.

Bringing a Claim for a Middletown Car Accident

Our law firm will fully investigate your accident to find out who is at fault. Unsurprisingly, fault is often a contested issue. The driver who struck you might claim you ran a red light when, in fact, your light was green. We can talk to witnesses and search for surveillance video that might have caught the accident to really pin down who is to blame.

We typically seek fair compensation to cover:

  • Car damage and other damaged property.
  • Medical bills, including prescription medication, physical therapy, rehabilitation, surgery, doctor visits, and diagnostic tests.
  • Lost income when you are in so much pain you can’t work.
  • Future medical care if you have a catastrophic or long-term injury.
  • Loss of earning capacity, when injuries force you to find a different job or stop working completely.
  • Pain and suffering, including physical pain, inconvenience, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Emotional distress, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

You should consult an experienced Middletown car accident lawyer to review how much you might receive in compensation. There is no “typical” car accident settlement amount. Some victims qualify for six figures, while others might only have $10,000 in damages.
