With winter weather beginning to settle in across Connecticut, hopefully more drivers will begin to maintain a heightened awareness of their surroundings on the roadways. Bad weather is the cause of many car accidents throughout the country every year. However, particularly in the Bridgeport area, drivers need to be aware of another danger that is present year-round: other drivers.

In our local area, we have some of the busiest highways any driver could encounter. Rush hour traffic can definitely cause stress for anyone, but just think of how much stress a serious car accident can cause – especially if devastating injuries are involved.

When Connecticut residents are involved in car accidents on our state’s busy highways, there is always the danger of broken bones, brain injuries and spine injuries, among many other types of injuries. Vehicles on the highways are traveling at high speeds, which means that any type of collision could be quite deadly. Victims who are injured in these accidents may be left with mounting medical expenses as they face weeks or even months of healthcare treatment and therapeutic rehabilitation.

At our law firm, we understand the danger that drivers are presented with when they travel on Connecticut highways. When Connecticut residents are injured, we do our best to help those victims pursue financial compensation. Drivers should always be on the lookout for the dangers that are inherent when it comes to traveling on our busy highways.
