Dog bite law basics in Connecticut

When it comes to dog bites, many people may not know that Connecticut is a strict liability state. That means the dog owner is liable for the injuries that result from a dog bite even if the owner did not know that their animal would injure someone. This means even if the owner truthfully says 'my dog is very friendly and has never bitten anyone before', they can still be found legally liable for the injuries their dog causes.

Foreseeability as a factor in a premises liability case

People like to think about the future and how they will achieve all of their ambitions and goals. They may imagine the careers that they will reach or the amazing homes or cars that they will buy when they are more financially stable.

Two Children Injured in Hit-and-Run Accident, One Driver Arrested

Any type of car accident can be concerning for all parties involved, but a hit-and-run accident introduces a whole other element to the situation. As required by law, all parties are obligated to remain at the scene when an accident occurs, so that law enforcement officials can document the appropriate information about the car accident and who was potentially at fault. In a hit-and-run, the situation becomes more complex.

Motorcycle accidents: Making sure liability is based on law

The sense of freedom one can feel riding a motorcycle in Connecticut is exhilarating. And it is worth noting that state law does not seek to infringe too drastically on that freedom. For example, while many states have mandatory helmet laws, Connecticut has chosen to allow adult motorcyclists the choice of whether to wear head protection or not.
