What is a dram shop law?

The first question you may have after learning that the person who caused your car accident in New Haven was drunk at the time may be who would let even let a person drive in an intoxicated state? While fault for your accident certainly lies with the person who chose to imbibe and then climb behind the wheel, you could argue that whomever gave him or her access to alcohol might also be culpable. In certain cases, you would be right. 

How can I cope with the death of a loved one?

Losing a loved one is usually a harrowing experience, especially when the death was caused by another person’s negligence. As a result, it can be difficult for people in Connecticut to navigate the grieving process, which is usually fraught with a wide array of complex emotions. If you’ve recently lost someone you cared about deeply, the American Psychological Association recommends the following advice.

A basic understanding of the personal injury claims process

A car accident can change your life in an instant. It can leave you with physical injuries that can cause significant and ongoing pain. It can also lead to financial losses that will affect your Connecticut family for months and years to come. Navigating the aftermath can be a daunting task. 

Defining casual employment

The general assumption amongst most in New Haven might be that any injury suffered while one is engaged in fulfilling the terms of employment is covered under workers' compensation. This thought allows you to be fully engaged in your work without worrying about having to cover any expenses that might result from a work-related injury. Many of those that we here at The Law Office of George H. Romania, LLC have worked with have come to us with this assumption, only to then be disappointed to learn that workers' compensation does not apply to every professional relationship. One such exception is cases of casual labor. 

Loss of consortium in Connecticut

A common misconception amongst many in New Haven might be that wrongful death lawsuits are simply meant to punish the parties believed to be responsible for causing the untimely deaths of others. On the contrary, most who seek such action are simply trying to deal with the expenses associated with their losses the best that they can. Typically, the greatest of those losses are not monetary, but rather the emotional pain felt by being deprived of their family member or friend's companionship. The legal term for this deprivation is "loss of consortium." 

Duck boat involved in collision with car

Many motorists in New Haven may not fully grasp the enormity of the responsibility that they assume when they get behind the wheel. Not only do they have the duty to operate their vehicles in a way that does not endanger others on the road around them, but they also must drive in a manner that protects their passengers in their own vehicles. A failure to fulfill both responsibilities can quickly open a driver up to liability claims from multiple parties.
