Understanding occupational hearing loss

Are you finding that lately, you are constantly having to ask people to repeat themselves? Many think that hearing loss is something that just happens over time. However, many of those in New Haven that we here at The Law Office of George H. Romania have worked with have been shocked to discover that their jobs may be why they have become hard of hearing. Much like with a harmful chemical or substance, over-exposure to noise in the workplace can eventually take a toll on you and your ears. Occupational hearing loss may entitle you to workers' compensation to help pay for its affects. 

How does alcohol affect driving skills?

The holidays always bring plenty of opportunities for making merry in Connecticut, and several opportunities to drink and drive. Despite the DUI checkpoints, repeated public service warnings not to drink and drive and the availability of ride-share programs to see drinkers home, they may still be tempted to get behind the wheel after having “just a few,” putting you and others on the road in danger. 

New Haven property owners are liable for icy sidewalks

Snow may make for beautiful scenery around New Haven, but the icy sidewalks it leaves behind are never as welcome a view. Just about everyone dreads having to navigate ice-encrusted walkways, parking lots and other slippery winter surfaces, mentally bracing for what they know can happen in a split second—a slip and fall. Hopefully, it is only someone's ego that gets bruised, but injuries can occur, too.

Life after a traumatic brain injury

Regardless of the cause, life after a traumatic brain injury can become challenging in a plethora of ways. Because not all of these challenges are visible, many of those who have experienced a TBI silently struggle. There are, however, many resources for Connecticut residents dealing with such obstacles, including rehabilitation facilities and even at-home approaches to finding peace of both body and mind.

Did your work make you sick? You could get workers' compensation

Many Connecticut readers know that they could have a rightful claim to financial compensation through the workers' compensation system if they are hurt at work. You may be fully aware of your right to seek these benefits for a work-related injury, but you may not know that you could get these benefits for an occupational illness as well. 

Can I file a personal injury claim if I think I suffered whiplash

If someone was negligent and caused your fall and resulting injury, it may be possible to make a claim in Connecticut and even file a lawsuit if necessary. Of course, medical evidence will be necessary to prove a case of whiplash as well as the extent of your personal injury damages.
