Fatal Connecticut car accident results in motorcyclist's death

On these recent wintry nights, it is more important than ever to be a cautious driver. The slick roads combined with reduced visibility can mean extremely dangerous conditions. Even if one is obeying hard laws of the road, such as driving the speed limit and stopping at a stop sign, if that individual is not driving safely for conditions, their behavior could be considered negligent by both the public and the law. A negligent driver or distracted driver has the capacity to seriously injure others, which can sometimes even result in fatality.

There is sometimes nothing worse than a fatal car accident caused by a drunk driver. In any circumstance, the loss of a loved one in an accident is a truly tragic event. Yet, when the event is a drunk driving accident, the utter senselessness of the act adds to the tragedy. In Connecticut, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD, are pointing out that alcohol-related crashes are harming hundreds of residents every year.

Medical malpractice claim upheld in high court

A state appellate court recently addressed such an issue in a medical malpractice claim.

Tragedy strikes in multi-vehicle car accident in Connecticut

It is a tragic day when a life is lost in a car wreck. Such tragedy occurred recently in Middlebury, Connecticut, when a multi-vehicle crash resulted in a fatality. Prior to the collision, there were a number of vehicles traveling on Interstate 84 East. While in heavy traffic, five cars in the left lane slowed upon approaching some congestion. A sixth vehicle, which was a truck, approached from behind and struck the fifth vehicle.
