There are many different vehicles that will be on the road throughout Connecticut and their operators must be vigilant and watch out for one another. Especially vulnerable are those on motorcycles, scooters and bicycles. Even when the rider is taking all the necessary precautions and wearing protective gear, there can still be serious injury and death when there is a crash with a car. People who have been hurt when riding a scooter, and those who have lost a loved one in a crash involving one, should know they have the right to seek compensation in a legal filing.
Many Connecticut workers injured on the job might have the right to get workers' compensation benefits, but are afraid to because there was an implied or direct threat to their job, if they did so. For workers who are facing this type of situation, it is important to know the law and how it deals with employers who are engaging in this activity. If it happens, the worker should consider filing a lawsuit.
Connecticut roads have become increasingly dangerous for drivers and especially for pedestrians. With the number of drivers who are distracted, reckless and engage in risky behaviors behind the wheel, there are many accidents that would otherwise not happen if the driver was taking caution. An issue that remains problematic in this generation but has largely been pushed to the side with the other, above-mentioned dangers on the road is an accident caused by a drunk driver. Drivers who get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs pose a major threat. This is worse when they hit a pedestrian and a child.
While injured workers in Connecticut who are eligible for workers' compensation benefits should be aware that their coverage will include medical expenses, lost time at work and other obvious costs, there are some coverable expenses that they should also know about. For people who need certain services, it is possible that they can get reimbursement for expenses they have accrued. Knowing when they can get these reimbursements through the rules set by the Workers' Compensation Commission is important.
Stories about accidents involving a motor vehicle and a pedestrian in Connecticut have become commonplace. Reports about these crashes are prominent largely because they happen so frequently. Cars and pedestrians must share the road, but unfortunately, there are many drivers who are distracted, speeding, are under the influence, or simply do not exercise the proper amount of caution to make certain pedestrians remain safe. This leads to crashes. Since pedestrians are not protected, they will often suffer severe - and even fatal - injuries. Some of the worst kinds of accidents are hit-and-run pedestrian accidents. This is not only a violation of the law, but it also betrays human decency. After an accident in which a pedestrian was injured or a loved one was lost, it is critical to understand how to pursue compensation in a lawsuit.
