Back to School Month: Recap on pedestrian safety

The end of August marks the start of school for many children in Connecticut and elsewhere. Drivers across the state need to recognize the hazards faced by students walking to school, riding their bicycles or waiting at the bus stop. Additionally, parents can also take note of the risks and teach their children the safety rules for walking or bicycling near traffic.

Why people risk lives to snap selfies behind the wheel

While many Americans are well aware of the dangers associated with distracted driving, an alarming number of people continue to engage in this hazardous behavior. The truth is, using your cellphone while driving not only puts your life in danger, but it endangers the lives of everyone around you. Distracted driving takes your focus off the road, acting as a visual, manual and cognitive distraction. One trend takes using your cellphone while driving to a whole new level.

Brake failure a frequent cause of commercial truck crashes

Encountering commercial trucks is a common occurrence for most people who navigate Connecticut’s roadways, but that does not make sharing the road with them any less stressful. The dangers you face when you share the road with semi-trucks are especially severe when the people driving those trucks lack proper training, which can make them more likely to get into crashes that experienced truckers could likely avoid. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we recognize that there is a clear connection between truck driver inexperience and brake failure, and we have helped many people who suffered injuries in wrecks involving commercial trucks pursue recourse.

Ten people taken to hospital after bus crash

For residents in Connecticut with children or disabled relatives, bus services can be an essential way of helping transport family members. It is logical for parents or others to expect that drivers of these buses make safety a priority at all times. Unfortunately, there may be situations when these buses end up in accidents that put occupants at risk of injury or even death.

Bicycle accidents frequently cause injuries to children

For many Connecticut children, riding a bicycle may be a frequent activity in the warm summer months. While bicycling often promotes physical fitness and independence, there may be risks as well. Bicycle accidents frequently cause injuries, and these may consist of anything from minor cuts and scrapes to serious traumatic brain injuries.

How to spot the signs of road rage

If you have ever driven aggressively while navigating the Connecticut roadways, you are not alone. In fact, approximately 80 percent of American drivers say that they have, at some point, engaged in such driving behaviors, according to AAA. Not surprisingly, aggressive driving habits were involved in at least 56 percent of deadly car accidents throughout the country. Whether you are stuck in traffic while on your way to an important meeting or you are late to work, it is crucial to know how to spot the signs of road rage so that you may be able to avoid a catastrophic accident.

Personality changes following an auto crash

In the wake of a motor vehicle collision, an accident victim may experience various hardships in their personal and professional lives. Their relationships may be adversely affected due to physical, financial and emotional changes, and their job may also be negatively impacted. In this post, we will look into a number of issues related to personality changes resulting from motor vehicle collisions. If someone you love is struggling with this firsthand, or if you believe that your personality has changed due to a crash, it is essential to consider various relevant issues.

Speeding and drunk driving continue to pose risks

It might seem normal to you and many other people in Connecticut that you make arrangements to be safe when going out to an event at which alcohol will be served. You might choose to identify one person in your group to be the designated driver or you might opt to use ridesharing or public transportation options. Either way, safety is a priority for you. Unfortunately, it seems that not everyone in Connecticut takes their safety or the safety of others quite as seriously.

The power of justice in wrongful death cases

At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, LLC, we know that no amount of monetary compensation could ever make up for the loss of a loved one. You cannot put a price on closure. However, we believe there is often much more than money at stake for those who pursue justice for wrongful death through the Connecticut civil courts.

Be skeptical about generic settlement estimates

Connecticut drivers who get involved in accidents often turn to legal action to get compensated. Between serious injuries and large amounts of property damage, there imay be a significant amount of money involved in any given auto accident dispute.
