What are some common causes of driver negligence?

Negligence is a legal term meaning a failure to exercise the kind of care toward others that a reasonable and prudent person would exercise in the same circumstances. There are many ways in which a driver may be negligent while driving, including the following:

  • Driving drunk
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Running a red light
  • Tailgating
  • Using unsafe or defective tires
  • Making unsafe lane changes
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Expressing road rage
  • Driving aggressively
  • Texting or talking on a cell phone while driving

There are many other activities that are considered negligent if they are performed while operating a motor vehicle. In addition to being negligent, a driver’s actions may also be considered reckless. Recklessness goes beyond negligence, and reckless driving is a more serious offense.

No matter how the other driver was negligent in causing the car accident that injured you, we at The Reinken Law Firm can assist you in preparing and aggressively pursuing your claim.

How does Connecticut’s negligence statute affect me?

What if you might be partly responsible for the car accident that injured you? Under Connecticut law, even if you are partially at fault in a car accident, you can still bring a claim for compensation against the other driver or drivers involved in the accident as long as you are not more than 50 percent at fault. The amount of compensation you receive is reduced by the percentage that you are found to be at fault. With our experience and extensive knowledge in this area of law, we are well-equipped to help you to assess matters of fault and advise you of any potential impact on your claim.
