Connecticut Car Crashes

Car accidents are common in Connecticut and across the United States. Every year, more than 6 million vehicle accidents are reported annually throughout the nation. These wrecks injure more than 3 million people and end the lives of roughly 40,000 annually. Sadly, most are preventable and caused by the reckless and careless actions of negligent drivers. Drivers who become distracted, intoxicated, exhausted, or who travel at unsafe speeds risk their own lives and the lives of everyone around them on the road. 

In the past decade, driver negligence has become the main culprit behind most auto accidents that take place in the United States. The NHTSA reports that more than 94% of reported car wrecks can be attributed to negligent driving. Every day, more than 17,000 auto accidents happen per year here, while around 7,500 people sustain injuries and over 100 lose their lives. 

When you or a loved one have suffered injuries in a traffic collision that you believe may have been caused by a negligent driver, you should be able to recover without going broke. Being injured by a negligent driver can turn your entire life upside down and potentially cost you a fortune. Working with a personal injury attorney is in your best interest at a time like this. A lawyer can help you file a personal injury claim for economic compensation so you can pay for lost wages, vehicle repairs, medical bills, and more.
