What To Do If You Were Injured by an Uninsured Driver – Expert Advice From Dressler Law

Vicarious liability holds an individual or company responsible for another’s neglect. It is based on the principle that, because a business owner has entrusted their employees with the power to act on their behalf, the employer should be held responsible for their actions. In many cases, an employer can be held financially liable for the wrongful actions of their staff, even if they were unaware of the illegal act and had no control over it.
Riding a motorcycle is an exhilarating and freeing experience, which helps explain why nearly 90,000 people in Connecticut alone have chosen to join the 8.6 million registered riders across the US (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).
With every season comes possible driving hazards. For us in the New England area, I’m sure icy snowy conditions come to mind. But have you ever considered the danger of fallen leaves? More particularly, wet leaves? Living in Connecticut, drivers may be zipping around before winter rolls in. We all love our football games, fairs, and firepits; but we may need to slow down getting there.
As a high school student, there was one teacher every year that would lecture us new drivers about the dangers of wet leaves. That may seem silly but wet leaves can be just as dangerous as hitting a patch of ice. So next time there are wet leaves covering the roadway, slow down.
I had the unfortunate experience of getting rear ended by a tractor trailer a couple weeks ago. While I wish that had not happened, it could have been so much worse. I am thankful for that. I was sitting in traffic on a Friday afternoon. The highway was shut down from a big crash ahead. The same tractor trailer had been following me for about 20 minutes. He was 15 or more feet behind me when all of a sudden, he started driving ahead. He was not going to stop. I threw my hands on the horn and pushed down hard on the brake, but he kept coming. Everyone was stopped around me. No one was moving except this tractor trailer that was forging ahead into my little blue car.
