Man faces charges for fatal motorcycle accident in Connecticut

When you ride a motorcycle, you know you're at a higher risk of being involved in an accident because it's harder to see you. You take the time to wear appropriate gear and to ride during light hours, but that doesn't mean all drivers will be courteous to you. Some may be negligent or distracted, which can lead to a serious, life-changing collision.

How often do crashes and fatal accidents happen in Connecticut?

Connecticut is a beautiful state with many sights to see. In the fall, people come from miles around to witness the scenery. All year long, tourists come to the state to relive the nation's history.

Take these 5 steps to reduce the risk of a crash

There are many times when car accidents are unavoidable. Even if you take every precaution, you can't make someone else obey the rules of the road. As someone who has been in an accident, you have a right to pursue compensation from the person responsible for your accident. If someone you love is killed in an accident, you may be able to seek compensation in their stead.

You deserve compensation after being involved in a crash

When you're involved in a drunk driving crash with a dangerous driver, you probably know that what the driver was doing was illegal. However, while that may be, the case that you bring against the driver goes through his or her insurance or through a civil lawsuit. Essentially, you sue the driver for damages.

You can fight for compensation after an auto accident

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries in the United States. In 2012 alone, there were over 5.6 million car accidents with over 30,000 of those being fatal in nature. It's not always possible to avoid being in an accident, especially when other drivers don't obey the rules of the road.

Pedestrians: Stay safe by staying off the highway

It's important that pedestrians understand the risks of being on the side of a road. Unlike when you're in a city in a crosswalk or other obvious location, standing on the side of a highway, even after an accident, can result in you being hit. Drivers don't always pay attention, and it's possible that even if you're off the roadway, a negligent driver could hit you.

You deserve fair compensation if you've been in an accident

The winter months come with hectic, busy times thanks to the holiday season moving at full force. Car accidents happen, and some may be unavoidable, but many can be avoided by taking a few tips to heart. For instance, if you're traveling on a highway, avoid speeding in the fast lane, since this lane is where most highway accidents take place. You should stay in the middle lane, since this lane gives you the most escape routes, IE: You can move to the right or left in case of an emergency.
