A fatal auto accident in Connecticut can turn a family upside down

Fatal auto accidents in Connecticut sadly happen far too often. Some of the nation’s busiest highways, including Interstate 95, pass right through Connecticut. Just recently, three people died in auto accidents on Thanksgiving weekend in Connecticut.

Whatever the reason, the financial impact of a fatal auto accident can be devastating on Connecticut families. A recent startling study revealed the shocking price tag of an auto accident. In 2009, the cost of a single motor vehicle fatality exceeded $6 million nationwide, according to federal accident data analyzed by AAA. That figure is 85 percent – or $2.76 million – higher compared to 2005, when the estimated cost of a single motor vehicle fatality was $3.24 million.

In 2009, there were 223 fatal auto accidents in Connecticut, according to government accident statistics. That’s a potential lost of more than $1.3 billion for Connecticut families based on the study done by AAA.
