Police recently released the identity of a 62-year-old woman that was fatally injured after being hit by a bus near the Mohegan Sun Casino. Police were waiting to inform relatives before releasing the name of the victim in the recent weekday accident. The woman, P.L., was reportedly attempting to cross a street just after getting off her shift at the casino around 3:00 in the afternoon. There were many witnesses to the accident and emergency services were immediately called to the scene. She was transported to the hospital in an ambulance and had suffered severe head injuries and trauma to her face. She died at the hospital despite efforts to stabilize her. Authorities with the Connecticut State Police and the Department of Motor Vehicles are assisting in the investigation of the fatal accident. No charges have been filed as yet. Speak with a personal injury lawyer about your case concerning a pedestrian accident as soon as possible to find out about your legal rights and options.

It goes without saying that when it comes to a pedestrian versus vehicle collision the pedestrian is always on the losing side. Even the most "minor" impact of a car or truck with a person's body can cause severe trauma or death. These accidents can result in broken bones, severe fractures, internal injuries, dislocation, head trauma, spinal injuries, serious lacerations and contusions, amputation, paralysis and death. If a driver's recklessness or negligence was the cause of your injuries or the loss of a loved one then you need skilled representation that will get you the justice you deserve.
