Fatal pedestrian accident in Stamford

While the roadways in Connecticut can get busy and overwhelmed with traffic, motorists must pay attention to more than just vehicles on the roadways. In certain areas, drivers should take note of pedestrians and cyclists traveling near the roadways or crossing the road. Failure to see these individuals could result in a car striking a pedestrian, causing much harm or even death.

Picking up the pieces after a car accident

Motorists in Connecticut see their fair share of traffic. Whether it is during their commute to work, heading to the Big Apple, dropping the kids off at school or simply running errands, the roadways have a tendency to be filled with a number of motor vehicles. While this is commonplace on roadways across the nation, the reality is that there is no way to know if you are sharing the road with a negligent driver. Whether a driver is texting and driving, speeding or under the influence of alcohol, you are often not aware of these circumstances until it is too late.

Truckers must follow hours-of-service rules

Drowsy driving is a major concern on Connecticut roads, especially among truckers. This is because a fully-loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. If a trucker falls asleep behind the wheel and collides with another vehicle, the sheer physics of the situation often means that the occupants of the other vehicle can be seriously injured or even killed. It is for this reason that the federal government has "hours-of-service" rules that limit how long a trucker can be on-duty before having to take a rest break.
