When someone is overexcited while driving

A driver’s emotional state can increase the probability of a crash in different ways. For example, those who are angry may drive more aggressively, while drivers struggling with deep depression may struggle to respond to a threat on the road promptly. In this post, we will look at some of the concerns that are associated with driving while overexcited, which can be dangerous for different reasons even though some drivers do not realize it.

What can I do if I’m involved in a hit and run?

It’s every Connecticut driver’s worst nightmare. One minute you’re going about your merry way and the next you’re involved in a hit and run accident. Even if you were not at fault, it’s important you take the right steps in the aftermath. State Farm explains what you should do immediately following a hit and run, both to preserve safety and to ensure you receive the assistance you need.

What is a dram shop law?

The first question you may have after learning that the person who caused your car accident in New Haven was drunk at the time may be who would let even let a person drive in an intoxicated state?

In certain cases, you would be right.

Many motorists in New Haven may not fully grasp the enormity of the responsibility that they assume when they get behind the wheel. Not only do they have the duty to operate their vehicles in a way that does not endanger others on the road around them, but they also must drive in a manner that protects their passengers in their own vehicles. A failure to fulfill both responsibilities can quickly open a driver up to liability claims from multiple parties. 

Steps to take if you’re involved in an accident

Even the safest drivers in Connecticut may find themselves involved in a car accident. Knowing which steps to take is crucial in this case, for both safety reasons as well as helping you file a claim if you’re the victim of a negligent driver. U.S. New & World Report offers the following information, which can help you take the right actions should a car accident occur.

What is defensive driving?

As a driver in New Haven, being alert and aware when behind the wheel can help prevent serious accidents from occurring. However, even safe drivers can be involved in accidents when encountering distracted or negligent motorists, which is why defensive driving is so importance.

The dangers of aggressive driving

Tailgating, using high beams and honking the horn can be more than just an annoyance for drivers on Connecticut roadways. These dangerous behaviors are signs of aggressive driving.  Connecticut State Police report that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, aggressive driving entails operating a motor vehicle in a way that endangers or may endanger people or property.

Negligent entrustment explained

Car accidents in New Haven are a fact of life. That does not mean, however, that you have to accept you being involved in one as an inevitability. The causes of collisions can typically be linked to the actions of at least one of the drivers involved. If it is discovered that the driver who caused yours had previously shown him or herself to be a reckless or irresponsible driver (and was not even in his or her own car), then you justly question who allowed him or her to get behind the wheel of a vehicle. We at The Law Office of George H. Romania, LLC are here to tell you that not only is such a question justified, but also one that might be in your best interests to pursue.
