Commercial truck accidents are often more devastating to victims than consumer car accidents, and also present a more complicated process for those who must file personal injury claims in the wake of the accident. Those who suffer injuries and other losses in a commercial truck accident must not only address their own recovery, but must wade through evidence from the accident to determine which party or parties hold liability.
Are you the type of person who enjoys commuting to and from work on your bicycle? Have you come to find that this saves you time and money, while also providing the opportunity to get your exercise and know you're promoting a cleaner environment?
You sent your child to a party thinking that everything would be fine. You knew the parents as acquaintances, and you hadn't heard anything bad about the childhood friend your child wanted to go see.
When a consumer vehicle and a commercial truck collide, the results are usually catastrophic. Considering the scale of the damage possible to every party in the accident, these accident scenes can grow tense quickly. Not only must the parties in the accident deal with the aftermath, the company hiring the truck driver may have setbacks in its operations, especially if the cargo itself suffers in the collision.
You visited friends and enjoyed their company. Your children came along and played with their pet, a small Labrador. Everything went fine for days. You were impressed with how careful the dog was with your kids, and you felt like it was safe enough to leave them alone with him while you went to the kitchen.
No matter the occasion, hosting a party is a lot of work. The host has to make decisions regarding food, decorations, the guest list and what kinds of beverages to serve. After making these decisions, the host then has to take care of the actual physical preparations. But, duties as a host go far beyond these kinds of decisions. The host may also have to shoulder liability for any alcohol-related injuries if he or she is serving beer, wine or liquor at the special event.
Your child was playing in the yard when your neighbor's dog started to walk toward him. You were familiar with the dog, so you didn't go out of your way to protect your child from it. As your child was playing with the pet, he began to get a little rough, as toddlers do. Unfortunately, he did something the dog didn't like, and, after your toddler, understandably, missed the warning signs, the dog bit him.
If you are the parent of a Wallingford teen, chances are good that you are already aware of the major social event that is looming on your child's high school horizon — homecoming.
Outdoor recreation in Wallingford comes with its own set of hazards. For example, is the area where you are running or walking safe from criminal activity? Are the roads or paths well-maintained? Do you have to cross any major thoroughfares where there is heavy traffic?
Summertime in Connecticut sees a large increase in the number of motorcycles on the road, which makes sense. The sun is out, the roads are dry and clear. Summer presents ideal conditions for using a motorcycle to commute to work or just taking it out for a pleasure cruise. Most motorcycle drivers in the state are well-trained and aware of the law. They know how to share the roads safely with larger vehicles.
