Safety equipment can reduce big truck accidents

At Weber & Carrier, LLP, we often work with clients injured in truck accidents as a result of negligence.

Preventing severe scarring after a dog bite

If people have been the victims of a dog attack in Connecticut, their injuries may be prone to severe scarring depending on the severity of the attack.

Are hands-free cellphones really safe?

If you are like many other drivers in the United States, you have used your cellphone while behind the wheel. This deadly practice, however, leads to catastrophic car accidents, injuries and deaths. In 2016, 3,450 people were killed, and another 391,000 people were injured in distracted driving car accidents in the U.S., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As a result, many states, including Connecticut, implemented legislation banning the use of hand-hand cellphones while driving. In order to stay in compliance with the law, you may have used a hands-free cellphone while driving. However, studies show that these devices may not be a safe alternative to their hand-held counterparts.
