State wants helmet law to save lives in motorcycle accidents

The Connecticut Transportation Department has estimated that close to 50 motorcyclists will die each year for the next two years as a result of crashes. These figures were possibly offered in support of the renewed efforts to reinstate helmet laws. However, there are many who are opposed to such laws as such safety measures may not make a difference in many motorcycle accidents.

Don't let motorcycle accidents spin your finances out as well

Nothing appeals to Connecticut bikers as much as warm weather and the open road. Unfortunately, even the most experienced riders face a higher risk of serious injuries from unforeseen motorcycle accidents. You do not have only the physical pain that these inflict; your finances are often sent spiraling downhill as well.

Family might consider wrongful death suit after fatal crash

The Memorial Day weekend unofficially marks the beginning of summer and an increase in traffic along Connecticut highways and parkways. It can also end in tragedy if drivers do not exercise due diligence at all times. Now one family may consider the merits of filing a wrongful death suit after a fatal wreck robbed them of their loved one.

If a loved one dies a possibly wrongful death, you are not alone

When you got out of bed that day, you had no way of knowing that your life would change forever. The call that your beloved family member was killed in an accident may be the worst news you will ever hear. If that death was the result of a suspected wrongful death, then the shock may be tinged with anger and frustration as well. Like you, other Connecticut families who have faced this horrible reality may not have known where to begin when trying to rebuild their lives.
