Millions Recovered For Injured People

February 2018 Archives

Despite reduction in fatalities, car accidents still problematic

Statistics can be useful to determine whether strategies government agencies, law enforcement and car manufacturers take to reduce auto accident fatalities are working. For Connecticut drivers, it is important to keep track of these numbers to know what to look out for when out on the road. When the annual statistics for fatal auto accidents are released, even a reduction must be put into context. Such is the case with the latest numbers from the National Safety Council (NSC) for 2017.

Study shows significant danger of drowsy driving car accidents

Many factors can come into play when there is a car collision in Connecticut. Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are certainly aware of the risks they face when out on the road. With distracted drivers, drivers under the influence and those who operate their vehicles in a reckless manner, there are multiple ways in which a crash can happen. One issue that research indicates is underreported is drowsy driving. A study from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety brings to light just how common this issue has become.

Alleged drunk driver arrested after pedestrian accident

Connecticut pedestrians are among the most vulnerable victims in a car accident. Because they are not protected by a vehicle, when they are hit, there can be broken bones, cuts, lost limbs, head injuries, spinal cord damage and death. Making pedestrian accidents worse is when they are the result of a drunk driver. The combination of a DUI crash and hitting a pedestrian can cause so many different problems in the victim's life that filing a lawsuit is necessary to recover compensation for all that was lost.

Accident investigation ensues to determine cause of bus accident

Connecticut drivers who are on the streets may take for granted that city vehicles are operated safely and accidents are rare. However, vehicles, like city buses, can cause significant damage, including serious injury and death, when there is an accident. As with other car accidents, a bus crash requires an accident investigation to determine how and why it happened. Those who have been injured or lost a loved one should make certain to protect their interests by speaking to a legal professional about potential litigation.
