What is defensive driving?

As a driver in New Haven, being alert and aware when behind the wheel can help prevent serious accidents from occurring. However, even safe drivers can be involved in accidents when encountering distracted or negligent motorists, which is why defensive driving is so importance. Esurance.com explains what defensive driving entails and how it can help avoid serious injuries and property damage.

The dangers of aggressive driving

Tailgating, using high beams and honking the horn can be more than just an annoyance for drivers on Connecticut roadways. These dangerous behaviors are signs of aggressive driving.  Connecticut State Police report that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, aggressive driving entails operating a motor vehicle in a way that endangers or may endanger people or property.

Slip-and-fall accidents at work

There are many different risks that can result in a job-related accident. Whether someone becomes injured while working on a construction site or an office worker develops problems due to repetitive strain, there are many ways that people are hurt while carrying out their job duties. These injuries can make life very hard and may lead to a host of problems, from financial hardship to physical pain and career-related problems. Moreover, some accidents may catch a worker and an entire company off-guard, such as a slip-and-fall accident that nobody anticipated. If you were hurt in such an accident, it is crucial to understand what your options are.

Wrongful death vs. survival action

If you have had a loved one die recently due to the negligent actions of another, then you might justly be considering a wrongful death lawsuit (filed by either yourself or the decedent's personal representative). However, what if you had already initiated action following an incident that injured your loved one, and then he or she suddenly succumbs to his or her injuries? Many have come to us here at The Law Office of George H. Romania, LLC thinking that in since such action did not begin as a wrongful death lawsuit, their cause of action then dies with their family members. We can tell with certainty that is not the case. 

What is the castle doctrine?

There are many laws in Connecticut that pertain to your home and your legal rights and obligations on the property you own. A common issue with property is trespassing or breaking and entering where people try to illegally come onto your property. Luckily, the law provides you with a chance to defend your property and remove the offender. One such law is called the castle doctrine, which the General Assembly explains is your right to protect your home.

When post-accident symptoms include signs of brain injury

Sustaining blunt force trauma to any part of your body may not only cause moderate to severe injury, it may place you on a path toward a long, arduous recovery as well. If the blow you took was to the head, you are at much greater risk for long-lasting impairment; in fact, such situations are often life threatening. If you suffered injury in a Connecticut motor vehicle collision that someone's negligence caused, you have recourse through the civil justice system to seek full recovery for your losses.
