tips for driving in rain
Did you know that thousands of car accidents each year are caused by wet driving conditions?

Wet roads, low visibility, and the possibility that the puddle ahead may be deeper than you think all contribute to dangerous driving conditions. This is why both you and your car should be prepared for wet roads. So, what can you do to stay safe?

Avoid Puddles

safe driving during deer season
In autumn, deer become more active as they prepare for mating season. During this time, you’re more likely to see deer on the road which can result in a higher risk of deer-related vehicle accidents. To reduce the risk of hitting a deer, always stay alert while driving and be aware of your surroundings at all times. Here are a few driving safety pointers to keep in mind.

1. Be Cautious While Driving At Dusk Or Dawn

While deer can be seen throughout the day and night, they are mostly crepuscular animals, meaning they tend to appear most commonly at dawn and dusk. During these times, visibility is lower so slow down and use high-beam headlights to see better—but be sure to tone them down when oncoming traffic approaches in order not to obscure other drivers’ vision. Bright lights can reflect off the eyes of deer and make it easier to spot them in the dark. While your regular headlights will reflect off a deer’s eyes from nearby, your high beams will cast light further and will help you spot deer from a greater distance. By looking out for that reflection, you should have more time to slow down and pass the deer safely.

Dog bite injuries are very common.  According to the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”), over 4 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year. Connecticut, like most states, has laws that cover injuries caused by dogs. In this state, individuals who are injured by a dog can file a claim against the dog owner, or the person in control of the dog, in order to obtain compensation for injuries.

Summer is here, and boaters across Connecticut are taking advantage of the state’s beautiful lakes and coastlines. Unfortunately, the rising popularity of recreational boating also means that there is an uptick in the number of boating accidents and fatalities. Some of the common causes of these accidents include operator negligence, poorly maintained boats, excessive speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, and a lack of proper safety measures. 

Every boating accident is different, and recreational boat injury claims can be quite complicated. If you have been injured in a boating incident, here are four reasons to hire an experienced boating accident lawyer in Connecticut

1. You May Be Dealing With Serious Injuries

If you are a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident, you might be wondering what your legal rights are, including whether you are eligible for compensation for injuries you sustained. 

The short answer is yes—however, there are several questions that need answering:

  • Who was at fault in causing the collision?

Finding out that a loved one was involved in a fatal accident is devastating. Learning that the death was due to the fault of someone else can leave you overwhelmed, angry, and unsure of how to move forward. While nothing can truly replace the loss of a loved one, pursuing a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver is the best way to seek compensation for your loss. Read on to find out how best to proceed in such circumstances.

Understand Your Rights under Connecticut Law 

Connecticut law permits a loved one of a deceased person to file a wrongful death lawsuit in court.  Generally, such a claim must be filed within two years from the date of the incident.
