Connecticut residents who get into a car crash will have numerous issues to deal with afterwards, including various damages. Miller, Rosnick, D'Amico, August & Butler, P.C., will identify some of the most common post-crash damages.
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.
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.
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.
Connecticut residents who have been involved in an auto crash may be left dealing with the aftermath for weeks, months, or even years. Some of these potential injuries could impact the brain, resulting in long or short term memory loss or difficulties.
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.
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.
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.
With the return of warmer days in Connecticut often also comes more people out and about on foot. This change can be a good time for everyone to be reminded of the need to be safe while on foot among traffic. The ability to stay safe does fall to both pedestrians and drivers alike.
If you or someone in your family is planning to hop in the car for a road trip over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend, you may well be a bit concerned about keeping everyone safe while on the road. Your concerns are understandable as holiday times have sadly become known for accidents that not only interfere with fun events but that leave people with serious injuries or struggling to understand the loss of a loved one.
