Connecticut Auto Accident Information

Auto accidents happen for many reasons, and each year millions of people sustain injuries as a result of the negligence of others. Distractions surround us, increasing the likelihood of such incidents. Every year thousands of people are injured in Connecticut as a result of some type of accident of this sort.

Research studies show, for example, that the number of cell phone subscribers has grown from 94 million in the year 2000 to about 130 million today. It has been estimated that 6 percent of automobile accidents are caused by drivers talking on their cell phone. This means that a total of 2,600 people will die in cell-phone related car accidents this year.

Around 98 percent of reported accidents involve a single distracted driver concentrating not on the road, but rather on one of the following:

  • Rubbernecking (16%)
  • Driver Fatigue (12%)
  • Surroundings (10%)
  • Child/Passenger Distraction (9%)
  • Adjusting Radio/CD (7%)
  • Cell Phone (6%)

Many causes are due to:

  • drunk driving
  • drowsiness
  • distractions
  • cell phone misuse
  • aggressive driving
  • poor road conditions
  • mechanical failure
  • speeding

Drunk driving is another epidemic problem in Connecticut. Blood alcohol concentration levels are another major cause of fatal crashes. There were 16,694 alcohol-related fatalities in 2004 – 39 percent of the total traffic fatalities for the year. Of the 16,694 people who died in alcohol-related crashes in 2004, 8256 (57%) were killed in crashes where the driver had a blood alcohol concentration ( BAC ) of .08 g/dL or higher.  The legal limit for BAC is currently .08 in Connecticut.
