- Poor or inadequate road or traffic signs or signals
- Failure to pay attention to the road or to other drivers, including instances where drivers are sending or reading text messages, talking on a cellphone, adjusting a radio or car stereo, eating or drinking, or applying makeup
Under Connecticut law, in a rear-end collision, the party in the rear is always at fault.

We will work directly with your automobile insurance carrier, if necessary, to help you get all the benefits you paid for and to which you are entitled.
One of the leading causes of motor vehicle accident deaths is drunk driving. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal. When a driver of a car, truck or motorcycle chooses to drink and drive, he or she is displaying a reckless disregard for the safety and lives of others. Any injuries or deaths as a result of this selfish act are negligible. If you or a family member has been injured or killed as a result of a drunk driving accident, seek experienced legal representation immediately.
Representing Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents
We will seek a personal injury action against all responsible parties. This includes any negligent drivers as well as negligent bars or restaurants that served the driver. This is known as "dram shop liability," in holding the serving establishment liable as well. However, it is important you act quickly since in Connecticut you have only 120 days after the accident to provide proper notice to the bar or restaurant owner.

Connecticut Underinsured Motorist Coverage Lawyer
When you have been injured in an automobile accident, one of the first things you want to do is get the name of the other party's auto insurance provider. What do you do when the person who caused your injury has no insurance, or they don't have enough coverage to compensate you for all your losses? You want an experienced attorney to help you get the recovery you need; someone who has successfully worked with others in similar circumstances.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists Claims Attorney
Although most consumers don't realize it, coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorists is automatic in Connecticut. It is a provision in your automobile insurance policy that covers this contingency. Under state law, you get a minimum of $20,000 in coverage for accidents involving uninsured or underinsured drivers.
We have a thorough understanding of the insurance laws governing uninsured and underinsured motorists and know how to work directly with your carrier to get the benefits you need and deserve. When you come to us, we will carefully read your policy to determine the full extent of injury compensation coverage. You won't have to try to deal with your insurance company by yourself. We will be your advocate, whether we can get your insurance company to cooperatively pay the benefits you are entitled to, or if we need to take your claim to court to get the results you want.
At our office, we have the experience to understand that truck and motorcycle accidents need to be handled differently from car accident claims. The causes of a truck or motorcycle accident can be more difficult to establish, and the injuries resulting from either are often serious and catastrophic.
We bring years of experience to people who have suffered injury in a collision or crash involving a commercial truck, such as a semi, big rig, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler. We are knowledgeable of the laws and regulations governing trucking operations, and know how to read and interpret driving logs and maintenance logs, so that we can establish whether a driver had inadequate rest or a vehicle was not properly maintained.
We also understand the vulnerability of motorcyclists, and know from experience that many bikers suffer needless injury because other drivers simply aren't paying attention.
We handle all types of injuries sustained in a truck or motorcycle accident, from brain and spinal cord injuries to broken bones and road rash. We handle claims involving paralysis as well as amputation or loss of limb.
