Another Tragic Car Crash, This Time on Route 4 in Mendon, Vermont

| Jan 13, 2021 | Firm News |

I have mentioned many times before that crossing the center line is a substantial cause in fatalities and serious injury cases in Vermont. People can be distracted or driving too fast which is the primary cause of these crashes. It is simply stunning and sad that it continues to happen when it would seemingly be easily avoidable if people would pay attention to their driving and slow down.

I recommend that people always consult with a lawyer if they are in a car accident. Insurance issues can be complicated and not easily understood. Particularly difficult is understanding how medical bills get paid by which insurance company. Please call me today for a free consultation about your accident or other personal injury claim. I can be reached seven days a week at 802-888-7707.

Here is a summary of the head on collision mentioned above:
