Drivers face multiple risks


The National Transportation Safety Board announced its Most Wanted List of transportation safety improvements for the United States in 2016, culled from its accident investigations, which reflect the dangers faced by Connecticut motorists. These include reducing fatigue-related accidents, promoting the availability of collision avoidance technologies in highway vehicles, combating distractions such as texting and driving and combating alcohol and drug-impaired driving.

Seeking changes to combat these critical safety challenges demonstrates that they are a persistently causing accidents, injuries and fatalities. Drunk driving and negligent conduct has grown to incorporate more modern dangers such as use of personal electronic devices and misusing illegal or prescription drugs.

Injured victims will need compensation to pay for medical expenses and loss wages. Families who lose a loved one have the right to seek fair and just compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit for future lost income, funeral expenses medical expenses and loss of emotional support.
