Explaining the Family Car Doctrine

Like many of those that we here at Miller, Rosnick, D’Amico, August and Butler, P.C. have helped in the past, your primary concern after having been involved in a car accident in Bridgeport is likely how you will be able to afford your injury expenses. If the other driver was at fault, then you may be able to recover beyond what his or her insurance company is willing to pay. Yet what if the other driver is a teen? He or she likely has little in the way of added resources. However, a unique legal doctrine that Connecticut courts subscribe to may allow you to hold his or her parents liable.

Trucking companies recruiting older drivers

As many hit the roads this summer to go on family vacations, Connecticut drivers should be aware that more and more of the big rigs on the road today are being driven by those older than retirement age. With long trips and heavy loads, some worry that this is leading to increased trucking accidents.

Introducing the attractive nuisance doctrine

Outside of Christmas and their birthdays, there may be no time of the year that your kids look forward to more than summer. With no school comes the added time to head outside and enjoy adventures with friends. Sadly, as some of the Bridgeport residents that we here at Miller, Rosnick, D’Amico, August and Butler, P.C. can attest to, such adventures sometime end in tragedy. Kids (especially young ones) often do not fully comprehend the dangers that features such as swimming pools, construction site, abandoned buildings and lakes or rivers can pose. If you are not there to protect, then who is responsible for their safety?

Summertime may seem like the perfect time for people to enjoy riding on a motorcycle in Connecticut. For biker enthusiasts everywhere, summer is the season for this but it is also a key time for riders to pay special attention to watch for other drivers who may be under the influence of alcohol. Summertime celebrations may contribute to plenty of people driving on the road after consuming alcohol and this puts others at serious risk.

Assigning liability in a truck accident

Imagine driving on any of the roads in or around Bridgeport and suddenly being struck by a large semi-truck. Given the massive size of such vehicles you can assume that such an accident would cause extensive damage to your vehicle, as well as cause significant injuries. Yet perhaps you, like many of the clients that we here at Miller, Rosnick, D’Amico, August & Butler, P.C. have worked with, have already experienced such a scenario. Depending on the extent of your accident expenses, you may be forced into the position of seeking compensation. The question then becomes who is liable: the truck driver or the trucking company?
