Accidents On The Connecticut Turnpike

Some of these motorists are injured because of the negligence of other drivers.

Were You Hurt On I-91 Or I-84?

Over the years, scores of people have lost their lives on Interstate 91 and Interstate 84. Countless others have been catastrophically injured on these Connecticut highways. Drivers and passengers injured by the negligent actions of motorists have the right to compensation for their injuries and losses. That's where our firm can help.

Serious Injuries On The Merritt Parkway (Route 15)

The Merritt Parkway (part of Route 15) is one of Connecticut's best known roads. It is also one of the region's most dangerous highways. Many people are injured on the Merritt, the Wilbur Cross Parkway and the Berlin Turnpike, in part because of their antiquated design:

  • The exit ramps are short and ill-equipped to handle decelerating vehicles, which leads to frequent rear-end collisions on ramps.
  • As a two-lane road, the Merritt becomes backed up when an accident occurs.
  • There is an inadequate shoulder on many stretches, which makes it impossible for motorists to pull over, away from traffic.
  • Deer and other animals frequent the more inland sections of the Merritt, leading to additional hazards.

Because of these dangers, drivers on Route 15 must be particularly careful to avoid accidents. There is a lower threshold for negligent or careless driving, as anyone familiar with the road can attest.
