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 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.

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.
