Moving or Going on Vacation? Think Again About Overloading Your Car
As a Connecticut personal injury law firm, we have seen accidents and injuries of all types. There are many factors that cause accidents including debris flying off of other vehicles. When you and your family are hitting the road this summer for your family vacation or are moving from one home to another, be mindful of what is on the roof of your car.
According to AAA, during a four year span of time 39,000 injuries and over 500 deaths resulted from unsecured road debris. In Connecticut, the law protects us from snow and ice flying off of cars and trucks. Just like snow and ice, motorists are responsible for any damage and could face a ticket and fine of $117 for unsecured items that result in damage.
If you or a loved one was injured due to a piece of debris flying off of a car, contact our firm’s experienced attorneys. We will work to protect your best interests.
