Man killed by drunk driver day after Christmas

While January is in full swing now, the memories made during the recent holiday season should still be fresh in the minds of Connecticut residents. For most people, the expectation is that these memories are good ones. For some, however, these memories are filled with tragedy, loss and disbelief. Such is likely the experience of the friends and family of one man from South Bound Brook.

How does alcohol affect driving skills?

The holidays always bring plenty of opportunities for making merry in Connecticut, and several opportunities to drink and drive. Despite the DUI checkpoints, repeated public service warnings not to drink and drive and the availability of ride-share programs to see drinkers home, they may still be tempted to get behind the wheel after having “just a few,” putting you and others on the road in danger. 

Could driving with a pet pose too many risks?

Bringing the dog along is never a bad idea -- unless the beloved fluffy one is rambunctious in the vehicle. While cell phones and various dashboard gadgets commonly cause drivers to become distracted, pets have also posed serious risks on the road. Some experts urge pet owners in Connecticut to be especially aware of these risks for a number of reasons, the first being safety for all passengers. 

Texting while driving is distracted driving and it is deadly

Connecticut drivers, passengers and pedestrians are all potential victims of others who engage in distracted driving. There are many ways become subject to distraction on the road, but some are within the driver’s control. Connecticut has its own law aimed at reducing distracted driving.

Texting, driving and the law

In today's technologically-centered society, it is difficult to imagine life without a cell phone. Unfortunately, some Connecticut residents hold to this notion even while operating motor vehicles. Texting and driving has long been a nationwide issue, especially among young drivers. While some accidents leave drivers with nothing more than a mere dented bumper, others do not end so fortunately. Regardless of the severity of the accident, those caught using cell phones while driving could face major consequences.

What are some medical conditions that cause car crashes?

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, any number of factors can lead to a crash. Sometimes, wrecks are caused by drivers failing to pay attention behind the wheel or stay within the speed limit. Regrettably, some accidents also take place because of a driver’s medical condition. Whether you are concerned about a health condition you have or were struck by someone who suffered from a medical condition, it is vital to understand some of the different medical issues that people suffer from which may cause a crash.

What to do after a hit-and-run

Being involved in any car accident in Connecticut can be a terrifying experience, but a hit-and-run can leave you wondering what you should do next. Some of the most natural reactions, such as following the person, can actually land you in more trouble. We at The Law Office of George H. Romania can work to help you receive all the compensation you need no matter what type of accident you are involved in.

Road debris: A major crash hazard

Spring cleaning, the end of the spring semester at universities and nicer weather in Connecticut are all contributors to the number of vehicles you may see loaded down with furniture on the highways. While this is a legal way to transport your stuff, it can easily become a serious road hazard if the cargo has not been secured well. The legal team at The Law Office of George H. Romania, LLC, often provides counsel to people who have been injured in traffic accidents involving negligence.

Distracted driving is dangerous driving

For many decades now, Connecticut drivers have heard about the dangers of driving after consuming alcohol. There is no disputing the fact that too many people have died or been injured at the hands of drunk drivers. Today, a new and seemingly equally dangerous behavior is threatening the safety of innocent people every day. That danger is distracted driving. As cellphones have been standard issue for pretty much every person in the nation, the ability to put them away while behind the wheel seems to have been lost.

Distraction, impairment and restraints part of jump in deaths

When shopping for new cars, trucks or other passenger vehicles, Connecticut residents see the many safety features now included in so many vehicles. From airbags to braking assistance and more, there seems to be no end to the number of technological advances put into service for the primary goal of keeping people safe on the road. Sadly, however, all the safety features in the world seem to be unable to make the necessary dent in the tragic number of people who die on U.S. roads.
