The Merritt Parkway is one of the main thoroughfares through Fairfield County. Originally opened in 1938, it was designed as a limited-access parkway with short on-ramps and no acceleration or deceleration lanes. While it was ideally suited for the number and type of vehicles on the road at the time, driving on Merritt Parkway can be dangerous for today's motorists.
If you have been injured in an accident on Merritt Parkway, you should speak to a Fairfield County Merritt Parkway accident lawyer as soon as possible. The circumstances surrounding these accidents often leave both drivers open to accusations of liability. An experienced attorney can help to ensure that you are not held liable for an accident that was not your fault.

In some cases, a driver entering the parkway will ignore the stop sign and cause an accident. In others, the driver will enter the parkway at an excessive rate of speed and rear end a car ahead. At Jacobs & Dow, we represent victims who have been injured in all types of Merritt Parkway accidents.
Even if you may have been partially responsible for the accident, Connecticut's comparative negligence statute allows you to seek compensation as long as you were not more than 50 percent liable. We work hard to secure the full amount of compensation available for your claim.
