How do you identify and treat whiplash?

Connecticut residents who have been involved in any type of car accident may want to keep an eye out for whiplash signs. Many people don't consider it a big danger, but the truth is, it can have a huge impact on your overall health and happiness.

Technology tries to solve the problem of drunk driving

Connecticut drivers know that getting behind the wheel while drunk can lead to painful, or fatal, car accidents, yet drunk driving remains a problem nationwide. However, there have been new advances in technology that hope to make a dent in this problem.

Connecticut's accident fatalities growing

If you are like many residents in Connecticut, one of the ways by which you measure the quality of life in your area is how safe you feel that you and your family are. This safety can include many things including being protected against negligent drivers. This is one reason that things like speed limits and drunk driving laws are so important. While there are definite laws in place to address these and other actions, sadly they are not enough to prevent all accidents.

Protecting kids in accidents goal of new law

Most people who have young children in Connecticut know how strong the urge to protect them can be. However, not everyone always agrees on what steps are involved in properly protecting kids. This is one reason that the law sometimes becomes important as it can be the reason that parents do what is necessary to keep their children safe, including when automobile accidents happen.

Accident reporting requirements

If you have ever been involved in a motor vehicle accident in Connecticut, you know how upsetting this can be. Even the most minor fender bender can leave you feeling shaky and unsure of what you are supposed to do. Even if you are able to remember some basics like sharing information with and collecting information from the other driver, you may not have given thought to filing an accident report. However, there are some rules about when this should be done and it is something you should be aware of.

How does weather cause traffic accidents?

Traffic crashes take place for many reasons, such as intoxicated or drowsy driving and speeding. In Bridgeport, and all across the state of Connecticut, weather conditions can also play a role in these accidents. Unfortunately, some drivers fail to operate their vehicles safely during inclement weather and put the lives and well-being of others at risk. If you have been hurt because of a crash that was caused by someone's carelessness, you should look into your options as you try to recover.

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.

Woman killed after being hit by drunk driver

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?
