Connecticut Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers

Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, Connecticut

If you have been seriously injured in a Connecticut motor vehicle accident case, caused by a drunk driver, there are a number of issues which may need to be investigated to properly develop your case. It is very important that you contact a Connecticut accident attorney who has experience in handling cases involving drunk drivers.

We utilized the services of a private investigator who can get to work immediately on investigating your Connecticut drunk driving accident case.

In some Connecticut drunk driving accident cases, the drunk driver leaves the scene of the accident and, in certain instances, cannot be located. There are many different ways that we can investigate recovering money damages for you. The first place that we can turn to, quite naturally, is to the insurance company of the drunk driver that caused your accident. If there is no insurance or not enough insurance to properly compensate you for your case, then we can investigate other potential sources of payment for you. For example, we may be able to assert a claim against the bar, liquor store, restaurant or nightclub that served the drunk driver alcohol. We may be able to pursue either an under insured motorist claim or an uninsured motorist claim. We have decades of experience in representing Connecticut injury victims and their families and we have written the book on Connecticut personal injury law.

WHAT INFORMATION TO KEEP FROM YOUR CT ACCIDENT LAWYER

Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, Connecticut

If you have been seriously injured in some type of car, motorcycle, truck, dog bite attack, slip and fall accident, premises liability case, medical malpractice action, pedestrian accident, hit-and-run accident, bicycle accident, or some other type of Connecticut accident resulting in injury, there are a great number of issues that you need to discuss with an experienced CT accident lawyer as soon as possible. If you do not have your case properly investigated, at the earliest possible moment, then you run the very real risk that you can severely jeopardize your case because of mistakes that you might make that may be irreversible.

We have all heard the expression “honesty is the best policy,” and nowhere is this saying more important than in your dealings with your CT Accident Lawyer. Insurance companies and defense attorneys have databases of information regarding your past medical care, medical history, accidents that you have been involved in, motor vehicle violations that you have been charged with, insurance claims that you have filed, lawsuits that you have been involved with, your criminal history, and just about any other information which you could possibly think of. If you lie to your attorney, because you think that if this information became known it would hurt your case, then you will be seriously harming the potential value of your case because once this information becomes known by the insurance company’s lawyer, then your credibility will be seriously undermined. So make sure you keep any and all lies from your Connecticut accident lawyer.

When you go in to see a CT accident lawyer or personal injury attorney it is extremely important that you be honest with that lawyer from the very start. If you have been involved in previous accidents, let your attorney know that fact. If you have pre-existing injuries that affect the same body parts that have been injured in this current accident, let your attorney know that fact. If you have prior insurance claims, if you have a criminal record, if you have received a number of motor vehicle violations, and if there is any other information which you feel would be in your best interest to keep private and or lie about then you must be honest with your attorney and give that information to your lawyer.

CT Snow and Ice Accident and Injury Cases

Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, Connecticut

If you have been hospitalized as a result of an accident that occurred as a result of snow and ice either in a car or because you slipped and fell then you need immediate legal representation. Snow and ice cases present unique fact patterns and situations that require immediate investigation. What was the cause of your slip and fall? What caused the other car to skid out of control? How long was this condition present? What notice did the at fault party have of this condition? Had this happened before at or near the same location? What was the weather like before this accident? What other parties could be liable? These and other issues need to be investigated.

In Connecticut, winter weather mean lots of snow and ice, including black ice, that creates problems for people driving on the roads, walking on sidewalks or in parking lots, shopping at stores, visiting businesses, going to see friends or relatives and trying to move about outdoors. Snow and ice conditions can create dangerous situations for pedestrians who are injured in slip-and-fall accidents or for motorists who are injured in motor vehicle accidents. Property owners and those that have the care, custody and control of a property have a responsibility to reasonably protect those that are on their property and may be held liable for the injuries and damages that result from an accident that occurs on snow or ice due to their substandard care or negligence. In certain cases, the contractor who was responsible for removing the snow and ice hazard may also be held liable for an injured party’s damages resulting from their negligence. Our firm has decades of experience in representing people who have been injured in snow and ice accidents as well as other types of premises liability and other accidents. We know how to determine who is responsible for your injuries and how to get you compensated for your losses.

One of the issues that might come up in your CT  snow and ice case is foreseeable risk. The CT jury instructions state as follows:

To prove that an injury is a reasonably foreseeable consequence of negligent
conduct, a plaintiff need not prove that the defendant actually foresaw or
should have foreseen the extent of the harm suffered or the manner in which
it occurred. Instead, the plaintiff must prove that it is a harm of the
same general nature as that which a reasonably prudent person in the
defendant’s position should have anticipated, in view of what the defendant
knew or should have known at the time of the negligent conduct.

It is important to keep in mind that insurance companies have a team of experts working hard looking for ways to pay you the least amount of money possible for your case. You can help them in paying you as little money as possible every time you speak to the insurance company or insurance adjuster. You have to realize that the insurance company representative is not your friend and is not looking to help you. Their job is to save the insurance company money. So do not speak with them and do not agree to give a recorded statement but instead. Don’t forget that anything you say can and will be used against you.  So before you hire an attorney, speak to an insurance company representative or sign anything get a copy of our FREE book “The Crash Course on Personal Injury Claims” or call us right away and speak to one of our lawyers at (888) CT-LAW 00.

Snow and Ice Accidents Resulting in a Traumatic Brain Injury

Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, Connecticut

An accident or injury case in Connecticut involving snow and ice,

a slip and fall or cause resulting in a traumatic brain
injury of an individual can be devastating to the family of the innocent
victim. Any traumatic brain injury claim must be investigated immediately
so the rights of the survivor are protected. You need an experienced
traumatic brain injury lawyer to help you through this most difficult time

 

CT snow and ice cases can result in a traumatic brain injury, or TBI,  if the slip and fall causes the injured  person’s head to come into contact, with great force, a hard object such as a sidewalk, driveway, parking lot, step, curb, pavement or other blunt or hard object that causes the brain to smash against the interior surface of the person’s skull. A traumatic brain injury resulting from a snow and ice case presents a number of very complicated issues that must be addressed which requires the involvement of an experienced personal injury lawyer familiar with the investigation, development and prosecution of a TBI case. Our office has decades of experience in dealing with all types of accident and injury cases, snow and ice cases and traumatic brain injury cases involving car accidents, slip and falls, sports injuries, premises liability and other types of negligence.

 

Clients are often curious about how we go about proving fault or
liability on the part of the person that caused their accident. The
Connecticut General Statutes set forth how individuals are to behave, what is required of them, including how they operate their vehicles. If a person is found to have violated one of these sections, then fault can be established. One such section that might apply in a snow and ice accident case involving a brain injury is Connecticut General Statute Section 14-240 which states:

Vehicles to be driven reasonable distance apart. (a) No driver
of a motor vehicle shall follow another vehicle more closely than is
reasonable and prudent, having regard for the speed of such vehicles, the
traffic upon and the condition of the highway and weather conditions.

People often contact us about their injury cases and want to know what damages they can recover but before an injured party can get to the issue of many damages, they
must first establish the fault of the other party. One way that fault or
liability can be established is by proving a violation of the Connecticut
General Statements that deals with the operation of a motor vehicle. One
such statutory section is  14-233, which reads:

Passing on right. The driver of a vehicle may overtake and
pass upon the right of another vehicle only when conditions permit such
movement in safety and under the following conditions: (1) When the vehicle
overtaken is making or has signified the intention to make a left turn; (2)
when lines of vehicles traveling in the same direction in adjoining traffic
lanes have come to a stop or have reduced their speed; (3) upon a one-way
street free from obstructions and of sufficient width for two or more lines
of moving vehicles; (4) upon a limited access highway or parkway free from
obstructions with three or more lanes provided for traffic in one direction.
Such movement shall not be made by driving off the pavement or main-traveled
portion of the highway except where lane designations, signs, signals or
markings provide for such movement.
