How big of a role does truck driver fatigue really play?

Do you know what type of vehicle constitutes a "large truck?" Even though many Connecticut residents suffer truck accident injuries every year, a surprising number have difficulty identifying large trucks -- and even fewer understand the crash statistics surrounding these vehicles. In order to understand your legal rights and responsibilities after a truck crash, victims need to have a basic understanding about truck safety.

Cyclists, drivers responsible for preventing summer car accidents

Did you know that the warmer summer months are a prime time for bicycle accidents? A larger number of Connecticut cyclists become car accident victims during this time of year, often because roads become more congested with road-tripping drivers and bicyclists themselves. Further, the warmer weather encourages more people to cycle to work instead of driving, further exacerbating the problem. Whether you are bicycling for exercise, enjoyment or a commute to work, you run the risk of suffering catastrophic injuries from a negligent driver. Here are some tips to keep your safe during the heat of the summer.

Is the drunk driver the only party to blame in an accident?

Did you know that the driver may not be the only legally responsible party in a drunk driving case? In fact, the establishment that served the driver to the point of drunkenness may also be held accountable if an alcohol-related accident occurs. Regulations known as "dram shop laws" exist in Connecticut to hold irresponsible servers and establishments accountable for over-serving those convicted in drunk driving crashes. Those parties may be deemed negligent in a civil case, allowing victims of drunk driving accidents to recover the damages they need and deserve.

Motorcycle fatality rates drop precipitously with helmet use

What is your opinion about motorcycle helmets? Are they bulky and uncomfortable -- or necessary for personal safety? As a motorcyclist, you might not believe that only 19 states and the District of Columbia currently have universal helmet laws for all motorcycle riders. A total of 28 states have laws on the books to protect certain riders, including those under the age of 18. The history of helmet laws has been fraught with dramatic twists, causing additional consequences for civil liability and motorcycle accident victims.
