How often do people drive while impaired by alcohol?

From financial challenges such as lost wages and very expensive medical bills to painful injuries and the loss of life, auto accidents caused by drunk drivers often lead to a whole host of problems. If you regularly take to the road in New London, or another part of Connecticut, it is pivotal to recognize just how often people drive while under the influence of alcohol.

Reviewing different types of large truck accidents

While many people think of semi trucks when it comes to large truck crashes, it is important to keep in mind that there are other types of large trucks that can be just as dangerous, such as delivery trucks, logging and construction vehicles as well as buses, to name a few. Unfortunately, all large truck accidents can cause severe injuries and even result in the loss of life. At Beebe and O'Neil, we are very familiar with the multitude of hardships large truck crashes have caused in New London, and other cities throughout Connecticut.

Understanding the prevalence of dog bites

According to the Connecticut General Assembly, state law mandates that the keeper or owner of a dog is liable if the dog injures someone. In New London, and across the state, dog bite victims are not required to prove that the keeper or owner of the dog which attacked them were negligent or aware that their dog was violent. Regrettably, some people are not familiar with their rights or fail to hold a dog's owner accountable for an injury they suffered. Dog attacks occur in various environments and it is important for people to understand how prevalent this problem truly is.

Reviewing statistics on drowsy driving

Over the course of 2014, over 840 people lost their lives in an auto accident which involved a drowsy driver, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, the NHTSA also states that it is impossible to measure the exact number of drowsy driving accidents that occur. In New London, and across the entire state of Connecticut, drowsy drivers pose a risk to themselves as well as everyone else on the road.

Reviewing underage DUI statistics

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a past survey revealed that one out of every 10 teenagers in high school (over the age of 16) admitted to drinking and driving in the previous 30 days. In New London, and cities across the entire state of Connecticut, underage drunk driving is a serious problem that has shattered far too many lives.
