Scooter Accidents In Connecticut
There are far too many instances where motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of those involved. This is especially true in motor vehicle accidents with scooters. Like pedestrians, these travelers are completely exposed to the impact of other vehicles on the road. For this reason, scooter riders often sustain fatal injuries in accidents with cars.
When victims are killed in collisions, they often leave behind relatives and friends who are devastated. In some cases, families are left to bear the costs of medical bills and funeral arrangements for their loved ones. When victims die due to the negligent acts of others, it is imperative for their families to contact a wrongful death attorney in Connecticut as soon as possible.
