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. 

Sandy Hook lawsuit ruling sides with defendants

The conditions and circumstances that might have led to one's unexpected death in New Haven may almost always be reviewed and scrutinized to determine what might have been done to prevent the resulting tragedy. If evidence appears to exist that suggest a person, party or organization was negligent in a duty to fulfill an obligation (and that said negligence contributed to an outcome), family members in cases such as these may feel justified in seeking legal action. At the same time, defendants in wrongful death cases might always fall back on the argument that no amount of planning or preparation could have prevented what happened. It might also be argued that their unique position absolves them of liability. 

The importance of manufacturing work in america

The giant of the American economy, the manufacturing industry is one that countless workers rely on as a way of life. Although many experts predict the end of the manufacturing world in the coming years, others beg to differ, pointing out that the industry is as vital as ever before. With the importance of manufacturing in current debate, many have turned to the subtopics of safety and efficiency in America's factories; does the nation's attitude toward manufacturing work reflect an accurate portrayal of the industry itself?

Family pursuing wrongful death lawsuit in alleged suicide case

When people in New Haven die under mysterious circumstances, their family and friends may hold on to the hope that law enforcement officials will find those responsible for their deaths, and that those parties will face criminal charges. If that does not happen, they may still choose to pursue a wrongful death action. One might question how one who was cleared for any criminal wrongdoing can then be the target of civil action for the same issue. Yet civil courts assign liability based on different criteria than those hearing criminal cases. 

Why are expert witnesses important to medical malpractice cases?

Pursuing a medical malpractice case can be extremely trying, particularly if you or a loved one are already suffering under the stress of traumatic injury or wrongful death. When it comes to discussing and proving your medical malpractice case, courts may rely on expert witnesses to provide testimony that can validate or negate your claims. But what are expert witnesses, and why do they matter?

Can you sue a hospital for an infection?

Residents of Connecticut and every state in the U.S. have likely heard someone say, “the hospital is no place for sick people,” or “I got sick at the hospital.” The sentiments were probably delivered tongue-in-cheek, good for a snicker or two, but there are times when a comment like one of these is all too appropriate.

The truth about medical misdiagnosis

For a large majority of Connecticut residents, putting a medical condition or injury into a professional's hands provides a sense of comfort. After all, there is often no trouble in doing so, for doctors are the experts. There are many patients, however, who have not had such a positive experience at a medical facility, whether it is due to negligence, incorrect prescriptions or misdiagnosis of an illness. Medical misdiagnosis is no new problem, but is it really as common as some might assume?

When a safe product abandons its promise

In a society where cigarettes have been replaced by the newer, allegedly healthier and more technologically savvy product called the electronic cigarette, consumers and experts alike have expressed conflicting opinions. Are e-cigarettes really the cigarette of the future, do they fulfill health expectations and, most of all, are they safe? There are a number of facts Connecticut consumers can keep in mind to become prepared in the case that the success of this popular product goes awry. 

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.
