Schools should be the safest place for our kids but sometimes they're not...

Every parent deserves to feel that when his or her child is dropped off at school or gets on the bus, that child is going to the one of safest places in the world- school! However, recent news and media have reported ongoing accounts of teachers who have taken advantage of students who are minors. For many years, TSRM has represented minor students who have been victimized by their teachers in school systems that have failed to have in place proper supervision and monitoring policies and procedures. Under the law, schools have a special duty of care toward the children who are have been entrusted to their care by parents and guardians. Our cases have include matters against

Congress may take action on VA's cover-up of doctor errors

A recent post here discussed some explosive allegations about the Veteran's Administration, including some allegations that errors made by doctors and other healthcare professionals working with the VA were not reported to the appropriate licensing agencies.

Be on the lookout for overmedication at nursing homes

When most people in Connecticut think about nursing home abuse or neglect, they probably envision negligent staff members doing other things instead of caring for their loved ones, or even physically or verbally abusing nursing home residents.

What are the main distractions for Connecticut drivers?

A recent post here addressed the rising danger of distracted drivers on the roads throughout our country. In fact, distracted drivers are such a danger that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that every day approximately nine people die in car accidents that are ultimately attributed to distracted driving.

Halloween was fun -- but dangerous -- for Connecticut kids

Recently, throughout the country, kids everywhere dressed up as their favorite superheroes or cartoon stars and enjoyed trick or treating to get candy. In many cases, the parents have just as much fun as the kids to see them with smiles on their faces having fun. But, as fun as Halloween might be for families in Connecticut and throughout America, there is a dangerous reality to acknowledge: kids, as pedestrians on Halloween, are more likely to be hit and killed in a pedestrian accident.

Rendering the wrong medical treatment could be malpractice

There aren't many jobs in the world that are harder than being a doctor. These healthcare professionals go to school for years, and train for several more years, in order to be entrusted with the care of patients. With all of that education and training, you would think that most doctors are highly skilled and good at what they do and, for the most part, that is true. Unfortunately, some are better than others.

These days, many people find it hard to put their smartphones down. With so many entertainment options at the tips of their fingers, people can be seen staring at their cellphones while they eat, during work meetings and, perhaps worst of all, while they drive.

Injuries aren't always readily apparent after a car accident

No one knows what to expect after they've been in a serious car accident. Their vehicle might be totaled, they might be in the middle of a traffic jam and they could be suffering from severe injuries. Whether it is a head-on collision, a T-bone collision or a rear-end collision, Connecticut residents need to put their health first in the aftermath of a car accident.

What you need to do first with a medical malpractice claim

People in Connecticut who have been the victims of medical malpractice usually can't believe that this type of negligence happened to them. We all read about instances of medical malpractice in the news, but most of the time it can seem like a distant problem that doesn't affect us. When it does, sometimes victims don't even know where to start with a medical malpractice claim.

How can you prove a premises liability claim?

Slip and fall accidents are pretty random. After all, most people avoid hazardous property conditions if they notice them in time. The problems arise when victims don't notice a hazard, and then they are injured as a result. These circumstances can give rise to what is known as a premises liability claim. So, how do victims prove these types of claims?
