Significant attention has been paid to Connecticut drivers who operate their vehicles while distracted and the accidents they cause. However, a long problematic issue that can cause many accidents is a drunk driver. These types of accidents are so common that it is easy to forget how dangerous they are and the damage they can do.

Penalties for medical professionals, a warning sign to families

People in Connecticut who are in nursing homes, hospitals and other care facilities have the right to expect a reasonable standard of care and a staff that is attentive and concerned about their needs.

When this does not happen, patients can suffer personal injury, even death.
