Tell Me Something I Don’t Know – I-95 Is Ranked As Most Congested Road In The Country

January 22nd, 2023

If you commute day in and day out you know that I-95, at least in Connecticut is one of the most congested stretches of road you’ve likely ever driven on.  Even if you are only on it to get from one place to another, once in a while, you can feel the congestion and know that it is hard to predict whether you’ll be able to arrive at your destination on time if you take the highway.  Congestion can often lead to frustration and road rage which is often a factor in New Haven auto accidents among other dangerous behaviors behind the wheel.  So whether you’re commuting to work or just trying to get from one exit to another on any day of the week, you are in for a long haul when you jump on the Interstate in Connecticut. So, living here in the Nutmeg State we really don’t need a report to tell us that congestion exists on this stretch of road, but now we have that report.  There is a transportation data company called INRIX that reports on the congestion that is infecting the roads of our country and they recently reported out that the stretch of road from the Sherwood Island exit in Westport to the Indian Field Road exit in Greenwich is the most congested stretch of road in the entire United…continue reading

Why Does My Low Pressure Light Always Come On In The Winter?

January 16th, 2023

It happens to us all.  One day you’re riding along in your car just fine and then all of a sudden you get the notification that one of your tires is low on air.  You might just write it off to a little loss of air in one tire, but then another tire and another tire light pops on and suddenly all of your tires are low on air.  If you’ve been following this blog you know that low tire pressure can cause safety issues and even be a complicating factor of getting into a New Haven auto accident. While low tire pressure is not the only safety concern in the winter months, it is certainly at the top of the list.  Other concerns like a dead or dying battery and snow and ice on the roads can also contribute to safety concerns throughout the winter.  Low tire pressure however, can be a major issue when trying to navigate the cold and icy roads of the winter.  Therefore it is critical to your safety that your tires are inflated to the suggested pounds per square inch (PSI) that is listed in the owner’s manual of your vehicle.  If you no longer have your owner’s manual you should be able to look on the side of your tire to get the right PSI and fill your…continue reading

Tractor Trailer Truck And Passenger Vehicle Collide On I95

January 14th, 2023

Earlier this week a tractor trailer and a passenger vehicle collided while commuting on I95 in Westport.  The accident is yet another fresh reminder that sharing the road with these giant vehicles can be both dangerous and deadly.  The speed at which these vehicles travel and the weight that they are often carrying can take an accident from a fender bender to a totaled vehicle in no time.  These types of New Haven truck accidents are more and more common as those who travel on the main roadways in and around the city are interacting with these giant vehicles more and more often. When two vehicles of very different sizes collide it is generally the larger vehicle that suffers limited damage and the passenger vehicle is often totaled or damaged quite a lot in the accident.  The driver of the vehicle is often injured very badly and in some tragic cases dies on impact.  It is for these reasons that it is important for all of us who share a road with tractor trailer trucks to understand how we can stay safe when sharing the road. Here are three things you can do when you are traveling on the interstates while sharing the road with them to keep yourself safe and avoid this type of dangerous accident that too often takes the lives of those involved.…continue reading

Defining The New Haven Personal Injury Case Around Product Liability

January 11th, 2023

There is a wide variety of New Haven personal injury cases that occur throughout the year and one of the less well-known is referred to as product liability.  This type of personal injury claim is actually quite common but it is not as widely known about as a slip and fall accident or a motor vehicle accident as something where there is need for legal representation.  In fact, product liability, can create a large need for representation in the case because it can often be complex. First, let’s define what product liability is.  Product liability is the set of rules defining who is responsible for an injury that occurs from a defective or damaged product that is purchased either in a store or online.  In the simplest terms, let’s say you’ve purchased a ladder and you get it home and you go to use it, but you step on the top step of the ladder and the step gives way and you fall from high up and injure yourself.  You may need an attorney to help you navigate the situation to where you discover that there is product liability on the part of the company who sold you the ladder and also even potentially liability with the manufacturer who built the ladder to sell in the first place. In the event that you find yourself…continue reading
