People speed down the streets and highways of Connecticut much too often. Excessive speed not only lessens the amount of reaction time but also decreases the ability to control the motor vehicle and increases the chance for fatalities.
Over the past few weeks, parts of the country have been slammed with winter storms. As a result, thousands of people have been working feverishly to keep the roadways clear. Unfortunately, the weather and large vehicles with snow plows have the potential of causing serious injuries to pedestrians. For example, a recent car crash in Connecticut sent a woman to the hospital with serious injuries.
Roadways are not just for motor vehicles. The roads are frequently shared with cyclists and pedestrians. No matter the mode of transportation, everyone must strive to ensure the safety of others. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death, such as in a recent incident in Connecticut. A car crash took the life of a pedestrian.
Many drivers strive to maintain everyone's safety on the roadways. They follow all the speed limits and traffic signals, refuse to talk on the cell phone and ignore other driving distractions. Unfortunately, despite personal attempts to maintain safety, the actions of others are sometimes unavoidable. For example, two people injured in a Connecticut car crash were likely unable to avoid the serious accident.
The highways and interstates in this country allow people to efficiently travel from place to place. As a result of the amount of traffic, the roadways are in need of regular maintenance. Workers often employ several different methods of warning drivers that construction or maintenance is being completed. However, Connecticut police claim that one man missed the warnings that work was being completed, causing a car crash that seriously injured three people.
The death of a loved one often leads to emotional consequences that are far-reaching. When the death comes as a result of an unexpected car crash, the shock has the potential of making the emotional recovering even more difficult. Additionally, there are financial consequences as well. For those who have experienced the death of a loved one due to someone else's negligence, filing a wrongful death case in a civil court may be an option. The family of car crash victims in Connecticut may be considering that option.
Advances in technology over the last 100 years have revolutionized the automobile industry. Such changes now allow people to travel longer distances more safely and in a shorter amount of time. Unfortunately, although driver and passenger safety has increased significantly, traveling by automobile is not completely without risk. Sometimes even the safest of drivers can fall victim to another person's alleged negligence. For example, a recent car crash in Connecticut has sent two people to the hospital.
Sidewalks are a wonderful way for cities to keep their pedestrians safe. Most people walking on one feel relatively safe from becoming involved in a car crash despite the traffic that may be going by. However, an unfortunate accident in Connecticut has left two female pedestrians with serious injuries after being struck by a car.
