Millions Recovered For Injured People

Connecticut State Police release July 4 DUI statistics

Even though the police ask that people don't drink and drive over the busy holiday weekends, the truth is that many people still do. Driving while intoxicated can lead to crashes, injuries and deaths, which is why the authorities work hard to stop drunk drivers before they hurt anyone.

It is easy to see why there is such an uptick in drunk driving over the July 4 weekend. People are spending time outside, drinking and having parties. They may not plan to stay the night where they are or drive somewhere special to watch fireworks. Unfortunately, if drinking is involved in an event, those who are there could end up driving home drunk.

Woman dies while walking dog in hit-and-run crash in Fairfield

When someone is killed as a result of another person's actions, it's important that they get justice. Their families should be able to seek compensation and support for what they've been through as well.

That's why this news is so positive for a family in Fairfield. According to a July 8 report, a man from Easton has been charged for being involved in a hit-and-run crash that left a pedestrian deceased on the Fourth of July. The man, 22, left the scene of the fatal crash in which the woman, from Pennsylvania, passed away while visiting Fairfield. The 32-year-old woman died after the vehicle hit her and fled. She was walking her dog at the time.

Use these 3 tips to avoid drunk drivers

If you're planning to enjoy the Fourth of July weekend with family or are spending a few weeks away on vacation for the summer, now is a good time to talk about drinking and driving. During holidays and in vacation areas, you're more likely to see people drinking and deciding to get behind the wheel, even though they know it's unsafe. Unfortunately, those decisions could end up causing serious injuries or deaths.

Getting hit by a drunk driver is life-altering. You may have devastating injuries that will take months or years to recover from. Some people have disabling wounds that won't ever fully recover.

3 pedestrians hospitalized after car strikes them on lawn

Car crashes can be very serious, especially when there are pedestrians involved. Take for example this case in which three people were injured after a car collided with a group of pedestrians.

The car crash, which happened in Stamford, reportedly took place when a vehicle left the roadway and collided with three people who were standing in a front yard at around 12:51 a.m. The pedestrians all had to be taken to Stamford Hospital, and two of them were in critical condition.

Road rage may be to blame for multi-vehicle crash

Road rage is a problem for some drivers on the roads. When a motorist becomes angry over how slowly others are traveling or because they're late, they may act aggressively and threaten others. Aggressive drivers may also make mistakes, speed or fail to put enough distance between themselves and others.

This car crash allegedly involved a case of road rage, according to police in Windsor. It took place at around 12:30 p.m. near the intersection of Route 218 and Interstate 291.

Who is responsible when you suffer a personal injury?

You and your friends were excited to have an afternoon to spend with one another. You were all heading to a park for a picnic and to play some outdoor sports. It was supposed to be a great afternoon.

Your world was turned upside down as you attempted to cross the street between the picnic area and a local gas station. Even though you had the right of way, a driver who was looking away from the road plowed into you. The last thing you remember before waking up in the hospital was looking at the ground coming toward you.

Autonomous vehicles may not be the ideal crash-evasion solution

You may be looking forward to a time when you won't have to worry about car crashes. You may be hopeful that fully autonomous vehicles are the answer to preventing accidents, injuries and deaths.

Unfortunately, even without human error, there is still going to be a risk of getting hurt on the roads. A study has found that autonomous vehicles may reduce crashes significantly, but they may not be able to prevent all collisions.

Your attorney can guide you through a wrongful death claim

You were on your way to meet your husband when you received a phone call from a strange number. You pulled over to take the call, and you were glad you did. No sooner than you heard that it was the hospital calling did you begin to panic. You knew the news was bad, and by the end of the conversation, you were devastated to know that your husband had died.

He had been involved in a serious traffic collision. A teen driver had been drinking and ended up speeding through a red light at a local intersection. They hit your spouse's vehicle on the driver's side, and your spouse didn't survive.

Motorcyclist ends up in hospital after collision in Connecticut

Driving a motorcycle is dangerous even at the best of times, which is why it's so important for motorcyclists to pay attention to what's happening around them. When a motorcyclist is hit, there's a much higher chance that they'll be hurt or killed compared to other passenger-vehicle drivers. This is especially true when more than one vehicle is involved.

Take for example this case out of Connecticut where a motorcyclist was injured after being hit by a vehicle. The motorcyclist was heading into an intersection when a 23-year-old woman turned into the motorcyclist's path. This resulted in the man hitting the vehicle and going on to collide with two other parked cars.

If you're involved in a drunk driving accident, you need support

Drunk driving crashes are devastating. The driver might have been asleep behind the wheel, failed to react to vehicles slowing down ahead or traffic signals telling them to stop. The driver might have suddenly swerved into the other lane or may have missed a stop sign and entered into a busy intersection.

No matter what kind of situation led to the crash, there is one thing that is true: The driver was not following the laws and was not being safe. Their actions shouldn't be ignored because what they've done has harmed another person.
