Motorcycle safety tips

Riders of motorcycles in Connecticut can attest to the fact they are fuel efficient and fun to ride. However, motorcycles are involved in more serious accidents than other motor vehicles, so riders should be aware of how to be safer on the road.

How to implement safe winter driving tips

Connecticut and other states in the Northeast are expecting major winter storms in the coming week. Drivers who need to be out in the ice and snow should prepare for maneuvering their vehicles in these inclement conditions to prevent collisions with others and in the event they become stranded.

The link between music and car wrecks

We have been over many car accident causes that people frequently reference, from drunk driving to fatigue. However, there are less frequently mentioned causes that can be dangerous as well, such as music. Our law office knows that music can lead to a motor vehicle collision in various ways and we hope to remind drivers of how crucial it is to be safe when behind the wheel. Unfortunately, some drivers are simply careless and will increase the chances of a collision without regard for lives, including their own.

When rushing causes a car crash

Whether a driver wants to get to the airport before a plane takes off or they are worried that they will not make it to work on time, there are many reasons why drivers rush. Sadly, doing so can increase the chances of a motor vehicle collision and put other lives at risk, especially when those who are in a rush reach high speeds or fail to pay proper attention to the road. In the modern era, many people find themselves short on time and put themselves in this position, which can be very hazardous for everyone on the road.

Traveling with a car crash injury

In 2012, over 2.5 million people in the U.S. received emergency treatment for an injury that they sustained in a car crash, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Moreover, Americans are hospitalized for over one million days per year as a result of auto crash injuries, according to statistics provided by the CDC. Sometimes, people need to travel and are unable to rest and recover from the accident as much as they would like to. For some victims, traveling with an auto accident injury is especially difficult or even impossible.

Moving on from a crash as a college student

If you are in college, a car accident can create many challenges which could interfere with school. Whether you are in your first year of college or are expecting to graduate soon, it is important to do what you can to prevent the accident from affecting your grades, if possible. Our law firm knows how physically, financially, and mentally upsetting these crashes can be, especially for those who may already be facing a high level of stress due to college-related commitments.

Sharing information after an accident

People often have an array of questions after an accident, such as whether or not they should take legal action or how they will recover from the crash from a financial standpoint. For some, social media can be a way to find support and connect with other people who have been in a similar situation. However, it is essential to be careful about the information that you decide to share online. In the digital age, some people have a habit of sharing too much information, which can create problems in life. Unfortunately, this can be especially true for car accident victims who may plan on heading to court or filing a claim with their insurance company.

Poor vision and car accidents

There are many reasons why motor vehicle wrecks ruin lives, whether an intoxicated driver takes to the road or bad signage plays a role in a crash. Sadly, drivers cause crashes due to poor eyesight and visual disturbances far too often. Moreover, these difficulties may interfere with a driver's ability to see the road even if they believe that they have perfect vision. For the victims of a traffic accident, it is essential to go over the details surrounding the crash afterward and ensure that drivers who are responsible for causing a wreck are held accountable.

Spiders and other unique car accident causes

Each day, accidents happen on the road for an array of reasons. Sometimes, a driver causes a crash because they are intoxicated after consuming illegal drugs, while other wrecks may be the result of roads that have ice on them or illegal street racing. However, there are so many reasons why car crashes take place and some people cannot even believe certain risks caused a wreck. For example, our law firm is aware that some motor vehicle accidents have happened because of spiders. Furthermore, there are other risk factors that might sound silly to some people but can cause a collision that has devastating consequences for victims and those who they love.
