Two Injured after Vehicle Strikes Fairfield Home

I’m Ed Smith, a Fairfield personal injury lawyer. Recently, a vehicle drove through the wall of a Fairfield apartment and caused injuries to two parties. Officers from the Fairfield Police Department (FPD) said that the accident occurred in the early morning. Reports indicated that the crash left two people, who had been inside the apartment at the time of the crash, with injuries. Officers also noted that the accident started a fire inside the apartment. However, firefighters were able to contain it before it spread to other homes in the area.

Accident Details

The accident was reported by the Fairfield Fire Department (FFD) at 6:24 a.m. FFD included pictures of the collision in their report that show major property damage to the apartment, with most of one wall completely destroyed by the collision and wreckage strewn throughout the room. The front of the vehicle sustained some damage during the crash.

Medical Response

FFD noted that Engine 39 responded to the collision. Additionally, medical officials stated that the two injured occupants of the apartment did not appear to have suffered severe injuries. So far, authorities have not released any further details regarding the circumstances surrounding this crash.

Investigation

FPD is currently investigating what accident factors may have caused this incident. Whether or not driving under the influence is suspected to have been involved has not yet been determined by officials.

Factors that frequently cause accidents like this one may include drunk driving, speeding, driving while distracted, auto product defects, dangerous roadway conditions such as low visibility, and more.

What to Do After an Accident

Accidents can happen without warning and often leave people confused about what they should do. However, there are some good practices to know in case you are involved in a serious crash. The first and most important thing to do is to make sure that you and your loved ones are treated promptly for any injuries that may have been sustained in the crash. Even if you think that you were not seriously injured, it is a good idea to see a medical provider as soon as possible to document your accident and make sure you did not suffer any injuries that may attribute delayed symptoms. After making sure that you are safe and uninjured, it is a good idea to gather evidence from the site of the crash.

Evidence to Look For

In order to support your case, it is helpful to have a substantial amount of evidence from the crash scene. If possible, try to obtain the following:

  • License plate information
  • Driver’s license number of the offending driver
  • Where the police report regarding a crash will be made available
  • Name and badge number of officers responding to a crash
  • Pictures of the crash site and all vehicles involved in an accident
  • Pictures of the surrounding area and roadway
  • Pictures of any injuries that have been sustained
  • Names and contact information of witnesses
