Being in any type of car accident can be a scary experience for Connecticut residents. But when the accident involves a semi-truck collision, victims may not only be feeling scared, but also lucky to be alive. These types of accidents are notorious for how deadly they can be, especially when the collision is between a semi-truck and a smaller passenger vehicle. As our readers can probably guess, these types of collisions don't usually work out so well for the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle.
When a car accident occurs in the late evening or early morning hours, there may be certain preconceived notions among the public at large, and even among the law enforcement officers investigating the crash. For some, the first thought goes to drunk driving. For others, perhaps they believe another distraction occurred, or that the driver just wasn't that good at paying attention to the road at night. The fewer details that are reported, the more people's imaginations will be left to wander.
Many of our readers know that when Connecticut residents are injured on another person's property, it may be possible to seek compensation from the property owner in a premises liability lawsuit. These types of lawsuits are common when people are injured in slip-and-fall accidents, or due to the presence of some dangerous condition on the property in question. But what about inadequate security claims?
Now that the calendar is rolling over toward autumn, many motorcyclists in Connecticut will be trying to get in one last ride before they start to put their motorcycles up for the winter. Unfortunately, that means that, for the foreseeable future, until the weather really begins to turn, we will all likely see more news reports about motorcycle accidents on the roads of the Nutmeg State.
