What factors do courts consider in a DUI crash?

A personal injury lawsuit stemming from a drunk driving crash is the most important avenue for victims to pay for the medical care they need to heal. It could also be a way for them to finance living expenses after suffering a disabling injury that prevents them from holding down a job. However, this is only the case if the personal injury action results in a favorable monetary settlement. In order for a personal injury lawsuit to be successful, Connecticut courts will review several important factors -- several of which will be discussed below.

Truckers want you to help stop distracted driving

The drivers of big trucks need your help. These individuals, who are behind the wheel of their big, heavy vehicles for many hours every day, have seen virtually every kind of driving violation under the sun. They have also seen a lot of distracted driving incidents and they know what kind of havoc it can bring to other drivers (and themselves) on the roadway.

Is it time to inspect my car's brakes?

Here we are in the middle of April, also known as Brake Safety Awareness Month, and it is virtually guaranteed that millions of drivers in Connecticut and the rest of the United States are driving their automobiles even though they have brakes in desperate need of repair. The fact is, brakes are an essential element of safe driving and individuals with brakes in disrepair are at all times at risk of getting into or causing an injurious or fatal car crash.

Can telematics data help your case against an at-fault driver?

Sometimes it seems like our vehicles are increasingly becoming rolling computers and entertainment systems. Telematics systems such as BMW's ConnectedDrive, Ford's Sync and General Motors' OnStar can make our journeys more enjoyable and safer. However, the data collected by them can also be used in court. This in-car data can come in handy to help build a case against an at-fault driver as well as in product liability cases involving vehicle defects.

John LaCava has done a more than excellent job representing me in my personal injury law suit. His thorough and caring manner had me completely at ease throughout the process and gave me full confidence in my representation. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through the kind of painful accident I experienced, as the attorney who will ensure that your case is taken care of in a truly professional and very experienced way. - Patt Cartolano
