Millions Recovered For Injured People

How can a victim prove a drunk driver was liable in a crash?

Encountering a drunk driver is not something Connecticut drivers think about every time they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Unfortunately, though, some motorists believe that they are fine to operate a vehicle after they have consumed alcoholic beverages. Whether a person is over the limit or not, this alcohol use could greatly impair his or her ability to safely operate an automobile. Thus, even if it is not clear if alcohol is a factor, victims of a car crash should consider this a possible cause and a reason to try to hold a negligent driver liable.

Helping hold drunk drivers accountable following an accident

Unexpected life events can happen at any time. While some of these events are positive and exciting, others are tragic and devastating. While motorists in Connecticut seek to protect themselves from harm by following the rules of the road, this defensive driving does not always protect them from the negligence of another. No one expects to encounter a drunk driver, and they certainly do not expect to suddenly be involved in a drunk driving crash.

High costs for medical care associated with bike accidents

As a previous post on our blog discussed, bicyclists on and near the roadways face a wide variety of dangers. While riding a bike is a fun hobby, a great source of exercise, and an excellent way to get around efficiently, biking can also be hazardous when other motorists act negligently. An automobile-bicycle accident can be a tragic event, seriously injuring or killing a bicyclist. In fact, these types of collisions can leave victims with extensive damages that can be physical, emotional, and financial in nature.

What are common causes of a fatal bicycle crashes?

Connecticut residents rely on all modes of transportation. While some might use a bicycle for exercise or to enjoy the outdoors, others use bikes as a primary source of transportation to get to work and school. Although this can be an effective way to get around, not all motorists are on the constant lookout for bicyclists. Whether due to distractions or other forms of negligence, inattentive drivers can cause devastating bicycle accident. Since bicyclists do not have much to protect them, one of these wrecks can cause serious injuries and even death.
