Four injured in Hartford crash involving motorcyclists

Summertime brings out motorcyclists in numbers. This is mostly due to the warmer weather and the vacation and travel time made available to Hartford residents this time of the year. This means that passenger-vehicle drivers need to be especially careful of motorcyclists as they travel both to and from their destinations this summer. One Hartford man was involved in a crash with a motorcyclist that led to a chain reaction causing motorcycle accident injuries.

What to do after losing a loved one to a fatal car or truck crash

Most Connecticut residents feel tremendous empathy for anyone who has lost a loved one in a fatal car or truck accident. The pain and anguish that the surviving family members experience can be indescribable. However, they still must carry on with their lives and take care of the necessary tasks for their deceased family member. So, here are a few practical tips for surviving family members that may help them prepare and tend to the practical legal matters after the death of a loved one.

Motorcyclists can be uniquely vulnerable to accidents and harm

Motorcycle riders can be vulnerable on the roadways for a number of reasons. Motorcycles are less visible than passenger vehicles and other types of traffic. In addition, motorcyclists lack the protection provided by an enclosed passenger vehicle which leaves motorcyclists more likely to be injured or killed in a motorcycle and car collision if one occurs.

Statistics show more trucks involved in fatal accidents

Many Connecticut residents have had the unfortunate luck to be stuck in traffic after a truck accident. And while this may only be an inconvenience for them, they know that those individuals who were involved in the crash have probably suffered a lot more including potential serious injuries. And, according to recent government statistics, the number of trucks involved in fatal crashes has increased.

Connecticut retailers can be liable for slip and fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents can lead to potentially serious injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are steps property and store owners can take to minimize the risk of injury to customers. When Connecticut store owners fail to take such reasonable steps, customers injured in slip and falls may be able to recover compensation in a premises liability lawsuit.
