Mandatory reporters of Connecticut nursing home abuse

If Connecticut residents are aware of the term mandatory reporter, they likely tend to think of it in terms of the reporting of child abuse. People such as teachers and other professionals who work with children are required by law to report suspicions of the abuse of their charges to the proper authorities. However, the state also requires certain individuals to report the fact that elderly or disabled people are being neglected or abused in an institutional setting like a nursing home.

Keeping your children safe during holiday travel

The holidays can be a busy and stressful time of year. As you're traveling between holiday parties and family activities and taking care of that last minute shopping, keep in mind that the majority of the population is doing the same thing, and many of them are ignoring the rules of the road or distracted by thoughts of the next party they have to attend.

What are punitive damages in Connecticut Medical Malpractice?

Doctors and other healthcare providers fill a vital role in the lives of Connecticut residents. People are often at their most vulnerable when they are sick or injured, and need to be able to count on professionals who take their patients' needs and rights into consideration, and do their jobs as competently as human beings can. The results of physicians who make mistakes or act in an unreasonable manner can be devastating to the health of a patient and the mental and emotional well-being of his or her family and loved ones.

What is a negligent security claim in Connecticut?

This blog has previously discussed some of the aspects of negligence claims against landowners in Connecticut. We have touched on the various statuses visitors or tenants can have, such as invitee, licensee and trespasser, and what duty a landlord or other property owner may have with regard to those individuals' safety. However, safety does not only involve the basic slip and fall and the physical condition of the property itself. The actions of other people who are on the property may also affect the safety of people who are present for a lawful reason.

Three ways to prevent injuries while shopping this holiday season

The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and nobody wants to sit out the season because of an injury. Unfortunately, it's not just Black Friday shopping that can result in an unhappy surprise. People are injured at malls and retail shops all year 'round, but the busier the day, the more likely retailers are to skip important safety obligations.

What is the 'family car doctrine' in Connecticut?

It is an unfortunate fact of modern life in the United States that automobile accidents are quite common, and that they cause millions of dollars in damage to property and in medical costs to injured people every year. With the sheer number of cars on the roads, this is unlikely to change anytime soon. Further, the more time one spends driving, such as during a commute, the more likely it is one could be the victim of another driver's negligence. The civil law exists, in part, to allow those hurt at the fault of someone else to recover damages from that individual to help make the victim whole.
