Click It or Ticket

No matter how short or long the duration of your trip will be, and even if you are just a passenger, securing your safety belt is not something to be taken lightly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in just the year 2012, there were over 12,000 reports of people who survived a violent traffic collision due to the fact that they had been wearing their seatbelt. Additionally, some estimates state that elderly and young passengers are two to three times more likely to be injured in minor car accidents when they are not properly secured by a safety belt.

But wearing your seatbelt at all times does more than just protect you from personal injury - it also protects your pocketbook and livelihood. With the NHTSA kicking off their "Click It or Ticket" campaign every year around Memorial Day, police officers and highway patrolmen nationwide will be "cracking down" on those who don't wear their safety belts. Whether it be late at night or the middle of the day, or whether you are driving in the suburbs or a rural backroad, if you aren't buckled up properly, you can expect a costly citation.

At McCoy & McCoy, our Hartford car accident attorneys understand the importance of wearing your safety belt and encourage all of our clients to always ensure they are properly secured. However, you may still suffer personal injury during a traffic collision when wearing your seatbelt. If you feel you deserve financial compensation for the pain you were caused by another driver, contact our firm today to begin building a sturdy case. Furthermore, if another driver claims they were hurt by your hand, we can determine if they were wearing their seatbelt at the time and use "Click It or Ticket" laws against them to defend you.
