As New Haven auto accident attorneys who have been protected the rights of those on the shoreline and greater New Haven for nearly 60 years, we have seen accidents and injuries of all types. There are many factors that cause accidents including debris from other vehicles. When you and your family are hitting the road this summer for your family vacation, be mindful of what is on the roof of your car.

According to AAA, during a four year span of time 39,000 injuries and over 500 deaths resulted from unsecured road debris. In Connecticut, the law protects us from snow and ice flying off of cars and trucks. Just like snow and ice, motorists are responsible for any damage and could face a ticket and fine of $117 for an unsecured load.

If you or a loved one was injured due to a piece of debris flying off of a car, contact our firm’s New Haven auto accident attorneys. We will work to protect your best interests.
