Three Common Products That May Present Personal Injury Risk

August 21st, 2023

When you go to the store or shop online you should have a reasonable expectation that the products you buy have been tested and follow certain safety guidelines. You likely expect that you will be able to use or consume these products without the danger of becoming injured and having to file a New Haven personal injury claim.

Impaired Driver Takes Pedestrian’s Life

August 18th, 2023

An incident occurred on the Stratford/Bridgeport lines that involved an impaired driver who struck a pedestrian in broad daylight. After the incident, the pedestrian was killed and the family had to be notified while the driver was taken into custody and charged with a number of violations including driving while impaired.

While incidents like the one described in Bridgeport can happen Read the full article…

Work Zone Cameras Are Slowing Drivers Down

August 13th, 2023

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) started a pilot program back in April that is aiming to slow drivers down as they pass through construction work zones. The program has cameras that are mounted on SUVs at the work sites and if a driver is caught by the camera speeding they are mailed a warning and then if it happens again a citation is sent out to the driver of that vehicle. Safety experts suggest that a program like this is not designed to “catch” people in the act or as a gotcha moment, but rather to encourage slower speeds in work zones where many accidents occur and as is the case with most accidents the faster a car is moving, the deadlier the accident may be. The pilot program does not include any work zones in our area, so there will be limited impact on any New Haven auto Read the full article…
