Millions Recovered For Injured People

December 2015 Archives

Impaired drivers are a serious threat on Connecticut roads


A common misperception of drunk driving is that the driver must have a blood alcohol content above Connecticut's legal limit to pose a threat to other drivers or passengers. It is important to remember, especially during the revelry that accompanies this holiday season, that a driver may be impaired and dangerous after drinking any amount of alcohol.

A workplace injury accident can be an unpleasant surprise


Workplace injuries may include the dramatic and the mundane. Compensation can be awarded for dangerous workplace conditions that lead to newspaper headlines or government prosecution. A compensable injury may also involve a common occurrence such as a slip or fall, an accident involving a piece of equipment or even a dog bite.

Texting And Driving - A Deadly Combination

Most drivers believe that they can multitask while driving and still control the vehicle in a safe manner. Unfortunately, this is simply not the case. An action - even the most minute, instantaneous task - that takes attention away from the road can have disastrous, deadly consequences.

Pedestrians face risk of accidents during the holidays


Holiday cheer cannot erase the risk of accidents to pedestrians in Connecticut. In fact, the revelry and travel associated with this seasons can pose grater danger. Alcohol always poses risks to pedestrians, and the holiday seasons sees more than its share of drinking. This season also sees drivers drinking more than usual because of parties and reunions among friends and families.

Deadly driving behavior fluxuates


The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration released estimates of 2015 fatality rates that show a disturbing reversal of earlier trends that showed a decrease in accident deaths. It also cited dangerous driving behaviors that continued in 2014.
