If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in Connecticut, you have the right to seek an appropriate amount of compensation for your injuries, lost wages and long-term disability. Being hit by an under- or uninsured motorist is everyone's nightmare. However, you do not have to take being a car accident victim lying down.
Do you know the rules and regulations regarding the use of crosswalks in Connecticut? All too many pedestrians and drivers are caught unaware because they do not understand that they should have had or yielded the right-of-way. A pedestrian accident can be avoided by both drivers and pedestrians learning about their legal rights and responsibilities on the road.
Did you know that your motorcycle manufacturer is required to submit documentation to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration? All too many motorcycle accidents are caused by manufacturers who fail to honor safety requirements promulgated by the federal government. Recently, motorcycle companies such as Triumph have been hit with stiff fines for failing to report safety recalls and other important notices to NHTSA in a timely manner.
If you've never been in an accident before, you should consider yourself fortunate. Those who have been can likely attest to how difficult it can be to deal with the aftermath, even if they haven't been seriously injured.
