Reviewing Connecticut's wrongful death statute

The days and months immediately following the unexpected loss of a loved one in New Haven can be extremely difficult to bear. Those going through them may want to do anything but think about the circumstances that may have led to the deaths of their family members or friends. Yet when questions remain regarding how one might have died, those closest to the decedent may feel compelled to look into matters further to understand what exactly may have happened. If it is revealed that a person's death was due to the negligent or reckless actions of another, those most affected by it may want the chance to hold the responsible party accountable through a wrongful death lawsuit

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.

The unsettling trend of amusement park accidents

It is disconcerting to consider that the same amusement parks that promise to thrill visitors are also the cause of countless injuries and deaths. Wrongful death cases have entered the media spotlight in recent years after a series of accidents have taken place at some of the nation's most popular attractions. Connecticut, like most states, protects consumers in the case that an accident occurs; however, there is a statute of limitations on these laws surrounding wrongful death. Oftentimes these tragic events that surface front-page news fall to the wayside, but what are the possible end results of such incidents?

County facing three lawsuits due to deputies' actions

New Haven residents may understand that law enforcement officials perform a dangerous job that often puts them in the path of people potentially looking to do them and others harm. Thus, their use of excessive force to deal with such individuals is often understood (and in some cases, even appreciated). Yet it should also be understood that such force should not be applied liberally, and that those using it should exercise sound judgment before doing so. Simply assuming that it is needed may not be enough to absolve them if they later face liability claims. 

Driver hits man at intersection, flees the scene

Pedestrians in Connecticut have a responsibility to follow laws such as crossing streets in crosswalks. Their vulnerability in a motor vehicle collision makes it especially important for them to follow all safety measures and avoid putting themselves in danger. However, even when a driver sees a pedestrian crossing the street illegally, he or she still has the responsibility to do everything possible to avoid a collision. When a driver is negligent, impaired or distracted, a person on foot may not be able to react quickly enough to keep from being hit. 

How do burn degrees differ?

Connecticut residents who suffer from burn injuries will deal with one of three different degrees of burns. It's crucial to understand what each of these degrees means and how they can impact you in order for you to treat them properly in the aftermath of your accident.

Effects of burn injuries

If you have ever experienced a burn, you know that even a minor one can be painful and distracting, and it can sometimes inhibit you from performing basic tasks. However, more severe injuries can be life-altering. Here at The Law Office of George H. Romania, we understand the detrimental effects that many burn victims in Connecticut must face for the rest of their lives.

How do I keep my children safe at the pool?

During the summer months, many people in Connecticut look forward to spending their days on the beach or at a pool. However, if you have young children and you do not exercise certain safety measures, a relaxing day at the pool may result in injury or even death. According to Healthy Children, it may be a good idea to enroll your children in swimming lessons, even as toddlers. This is especially true if you plan to swim often or have a pool at your home. Even if your children already know how to swim, constant supervision is necessary. You should be actively watching children in the water, rather than using your phone or devoting your attention to other tasks.

Boating in Connecticut: the potential dangers

Connecticut is home to a number of gorgeous coastal areas, where sailing and swimming are only a few of many outdoor attractions. Boating is another popular activity in the state. As countless natives and tourists alike hit the waves each season, they also face various responsibilities regarding boat training, activities and operation.

Repercussions of medial malpractice

Cases of medical malpractice in Connecticut can result in a multitude of health and financial issues, and can take many different legal directions. The first and foremost concern is the well-being of the patient, as well as how a doctor's errors may lead to negative short and long term effects. Many factors, such as the failure to treat conditions and the concluding of exact damages, come into focus when determining the outcome of a medical malpractice case.
