Warning: Hands-free is not risk free

At Miller Rosnick Damico August & Butler PC in Connecticut, we represent many clients who have suffered serious injuries as the result of a car crash. All too often they tell us that the driver who caused the accident appeared to be talking on his or her cellphone at the time of the accident, even though they failed to notice a phone or other device in his or her hand.

Do you have whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when a sudden force forces the neck to move back and forth in a rapid motion. Though whiplash can occur for a few different reasons, the most common cause of whiplash is car accidents. If you were recently involved in a car accident in Connecticut, pay attention for signs and symptoms of whiplash. Whiplash does not always present itself immediately after a crash — in fact, many of the more noticeable whiplash symptoms occur up to 24 hours after the incident. Mayo Clinic details the signs of whiplash, possible complications and when to see a doctor.

Connecticut car crash causes power outages, school delays

A car crash can sometimes cause a chain reaction that can have unexpected and far-reaching effects. On Friday morning, three public schools in Wallingford, Connecticut, a middle school and two elementary schools, experienced a delayed start of three hours because a car accident in the vicinity took down a utility pole, causing a power outage. 

Common distractions while driving

Drivers in Connecticut have a responsibility to stay safe on the road, but distracted driving continues to be a big issue. There are many common distractions that drivers should be aware of so they can take the proper precautions to prevent accidents with others.

What does it mean when my car is totaled?

Getting into a car accident in Connecticut is never a fun situation. You may have to deal with injuries and the stress of being involved in such a situation. You also have to think about your vehicle. Regardless of how severe the accident was, there is always a chance your insurance company will consider it a total loss.

Conn. rollover crash results in fatality, injured DOT worker

Even a single-vehicle accident can cause injury or death to vehicle occupants, pedestrians or others. Sometimes the aftermath of one collision can contribute to another. Both conditions occurred in relation to a rollover crash in Berlin, Connecticut last Sunday evening.

2-vehicle crash kills Connecticut man

Head-on collisions between two vehicles are not very common, but the rate of fatalities that result from such crashes is disproportionate to their occurrence. A number of different factors, including time of day, weather, road conditions and vehicles' speed, affect the severity of a head-on collision. Such an accident on Tuesday afternoon in Colchester, Connecticut resulted in the death of one of the drivers and sent a driver and passenger in the other vehicle to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash.

Can car crashes cause medical conditions?

Connecticut residents who get into a car crash have to deal with plenty of short-term issues. This includes injuries like bruising, broken bones, sprains, head trauma, spinal cord damage, and more. These issues often come with a high hospital bill as well. But do the hospital visits stop there?

Holiday accident and drunk driving arrests

The holiday time is one that is often marked by local car travel for Connecticut residents. This might include going to or from parties, dinners and other events with friends, families and co-workers. This travel might also entail longer distance trips to visit relatives who live out of the area. Either way, being on the roads and highways at this time of year is not always something people look forward to.

Connecticut drunk driving deaths higher than national average

With the end of the year come festivities that often involve the consumption of alcohol, making the holidays a dangerous time of the year for people to be out on the road. Even though drunk driving deaths are 100 percent preventable, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that 4,110 people in the United States died in car crashes involving drunk drivers during the month of December over a period from 2013 to 2017. The same federal agency reports that Connecticut's percentage of fatal crashes involving drunk drivers is well above the national average.
