Serious Injuries… Competent Lawyers Daños Serios… Abogados Competentes

Were you injured in a car accident that wasn't your fault?

Every time an individual or a loved one gets into a motor vehicle, he or she is at risk of being involved in a crash or collision. Being involved in a traffic accident can be a terrifying and harrowing experience. This is especially true in cases where a driver is transporting family members and vehicle occupants suffer serious injuries. In states like Connecticut, the personal and financial costs associated with motor vehicle accidents are often significant.

During 2012 alone, data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that police officers throughout the U.S. responded to more than 5.6 million traffic accidents. When accounting for the likely millions of additional traffic accidents where the police weren't called, the actual number of U.S. traffic accidents for this timeframe is likely exponentially higher.

From whiplash and concussions to spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, frequently injuries that result from involvement in a traffic accident are painful, costly and debilitating. In cases where an individual believes that an accident resulted from another driver's negligence, it's a good idea to consult with an attorney.

Speeding, distracted driving and drunk driving are among the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents. Additionally, each year, dangerous driving behaviors like tailgating, running stoplights or stop signs and failing to provide the right-of-way are among the more common driving infractions cited as contributing to many accidents.

Individuals who suffer injuries as a result of another driver's negligence are also likely to suffer economic losses related to medical expenses, lost wages and disability. By taking legal action, an individual is often successful in recovering damages related to these costs.
