Have you lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident? If you have, then we understand completely what you are going through. At the law offices of John J.

It is vital for Connecticut drivers to be on a constant lookout for small children on sidewalks street corners, and anywhere else they are likely to be present. That means drive at an appropriate speed, obey traffic laws and put your cellphone away so you are not tempted to update your Twitter or Facebook feeds while operating your vehicle. Keeping your eyes on the road and being a cautious driver is essential if you want to avoid causing a horrific pedestrian crash with a child.

Motor vehicles are heavy machines that offer the occupants various protections in the event of an accident. Pedestrians and bikers don't have those protections, so when they are hit by a motor vehicle, the injuries can be very severe. In some cases, these accidents can be fatal. We know just how devastating pedestrian and bicycle accidents can be for the victims. With that in mind, we work hard to seek compensation for their injuries.
