Injuries and death result from Connecticut head-on collision

The cause of an automobile accident may be evident in some cases. In other cases, an investigation leads to a reasonable conclusion as to the cause. Sometimes, however, authorities remain puzzled as to the cause of a motor vehicle accident. Such is the case for a head-on collision that left one driver dead and another injured late Sunday evening in West Haven, Connecticut on the Boston Post Road. Authorities have determined that one of the vehicles crossed the center line but are unclear as to which one and are currently asking any witnesses to the accident to come forward with whatever further information they may have. 

What is the cell phone law in Connecticut?

Driving while distracted is a huge issue in Connecticut. State lawmakers often create laws to combat serious issues such as this. One of the top causes of distracted driving these days is the use of cell phones. Cell phones are very distracting. You may think glancing down for a couple seconds cannot possibly cause any problems, but taking your eyes away from the road for just a brief time increases your chances of getting into an accident. Most accidents happen in a matter of seconds, so every second counts when it comes to staying safe.

House and 2 parked vehicles damaged in Connecticut crash

When people think of car accidents, they usually think of vehicles crashing into one another. However, vehicle crashes involving parked cars or even buildings are more common than most people realize; according to the Storefront Safety Council, vehicles in the United States collide with buildings up to 60 times per day in the United States, and a recent crash in Middlefield, Connecticut involved two parked vehicles and an unoccupied house.

When could I pursue a wrongful death lawsuit?

Traffic accidents rank among the deadliest risks that Connecticut residents face on a regular basis. The incidence of these events is high and their potential outcomes are disastrous. With all of this in mind, you might feel that the criminal court system takes car accident deaths too lightly — and you would not be alone. You could pursue such a matter in the civil courts up to two years after the fatal collision took place, in most cases.  

Family of man killed in crash seeking damages

Connecticut residents who must experience the pain of losing a loved one in a car accident due to the negligence of others may often wonder what type of recourse they have. Certainly there is no way they can bring their loved ones back but it may be possible to seek some form of compensation for their losses. That is precisely what the family of one man is doing today.

The deadly impact of a head-on collision

Connecticut drivers who get into head-on collisions could potentially be at a much greater risk than drivers who are involved in other types of collisions. Why is this? Simply put, despite the amount of safety dedicated to the front of the car, it's still one of the most vulnerable areas on a vehicle.

Are cars really getting safer?

If you are concerned about the risk of being involved in a vehicle accident, you are not alone. Many people in Connecticut share your concerns. As more work is done to advance the technology that goes into fully autonomous vehicles, many automotive manufacturers are including other features in human-driven cars that have some level of autonomous functioning. These features are designed to increase safety and reduce the chances of accidents from happening.

Holidays turned deadly due to drunk driving

Residents in Connecticut like their counterparts around the country often look forward to the Fourth of July with excitement. This holiday is not only a time for people to celebrate their country and its history but to enjoy being together in the lovely summertime when they can be outside and feel free in the warm sun. However, the feeling of freedom that can accompany an outdoor summer get-together can be all but forgotten when a loved one is killed at the hands of a negligent drunk driver.
