Being involved in an accident can be devastating for a Connecticut pedestrian or bicyclist, especially when the negligent motorist speeds off without stopping at the accident scene. The motorist may panic and drive off to avoid getting caught. He or she may be drunk or may not have sufficient auto insurance. Whatever the reason, not everyone follows the rules when it comes to acting accordingly after an accident. Meanwhile, the victim may suffer serious injuries or even die as a result of the accident. There is a chance of recovery, though, even when the motorist is not identified.
Being involved in a commercial vehicle accident can be a scary situation for a Connecticut motorist. Semis, delivery trucks, buses, tractors and other commercial vehicles are much larger than passenger vehicles, with the end result being serious injury, disability or even death. This can mean substantial medical bills as well as lost wages. These two situations combined can mean financial disaster. Fortunately, with the right legal team, you can receive the compensation you need for all the damages incurred.
It can be a scary situation when a reckless driver hits multiple cars and keeps on going, with no intention of stopping. It can be even more frightening when victims are seriously injured. That was what happened on a recent night in Hartford when the driver of an SUV went out of control and had to be tracked down by witnesses.
The difference in size between motorcycles and passenger vehicles can cause motorcycles to become easy targets for distracted drivers who may not notice them in the roadway. An accident in Connecticut involving a car and motorcycle has left the motorcyclist seriously injured, and distracted driving may have been a factor. The car crash happened on the morning of July 1 along Route 63 in Naugatuck, causing traffic to detour and the road to close for several hours.
As Connecticut residents gear up for the busy holiday season, winter weather is always a consideration. Each year, far too many drivers are involved in car accidents in which inclement weather plays a role. In many cases, these types of accidents could be prevented if drivers would follow basic safe winter driving tips.
Holiday weekends are often considered to be more dangerous for highway travel than a typical weekend throughout the year. Why? It may be the increased number of travelers, the longer distances between destinations, higher concentration of parties where alcohol is served or even an increase in late nights that result in more drowsy drivers when it comes time to get home.
Most Connecticut drivers have likely at one time or another witnessed or encountered another driver who was driving aggressively or erratically. Drivers who engage in dangerous driving behaviors endanger not only their lives, but also those of other drivers, passengers and pedestrians. A recent crash along Connecticut's Interstate 95 illustrates this point and proves how the actions of one driver can adversely impact the lives of many.
In recent history, state and federal agencies have spent billions of dollars on anti-drunk driving education and campaigns. Today, Americans are well aware of the safety and legal implications of drinking and driving. While the dangers associated with drunk driving continue to be well-documented and studied, newly released statics show that drinking and walking is also often a deadly combination.
