Is there a time limit in Connecticut medical malpractice cases?

States like Connecticut often have conflicting policy outcomes that need to be reconciled when they are passing laws that affect their citizens. For example, states have an interest in protecting vulnerable people, like patients with medical problems, from being injured by the negligence of health care providers, and to allow them to seek compensation when they are. This is why there are laws regarding medical malpractice. However, some argue that the state also has an interest in keeping the provision of health care services viable, which would be difficult if doctors and other providers were eternally looking out for possible lawsuits over possible mistakes made in the past. Further, legal cases become harder to make as time passes, as evidence gets lost or becomes stale, and witnesses have a harder time remembering specifics.

Connecticut's busy highways may lead to car accidents

Connecticut residents are well aware that the roads in the state can be quite crowded, especially at certain times of the day and year. With the major winter holidays approaching, more and more people will be travelling to visit family and friends in the upcoming weeks. With Connecticut situated between two major metroplexes, New York and Boston, and home to a major interstate highway, I-95, running between them, the state's roads are bound to see an influx of traffic over this period of time.

Slip and fall premises liability in Connecticut

Many people in Connecticut and throughout the northeast look forward to the December holidays. Part and parcel of that time of year in this part of the country is snow and cold temperatures. This is often accompanied by ice and other conditions that can make even going out to the grocery store dangerous, especially for people at risk for falls, such as the elderly or disabled. At these times, it is important to remember that establishments expecting one's business also have responsibilities.

Every day, many lives are place in the hands of medical professionals across the country. While the hope and expectation is that appropriate care is taken, sometimes that trust is betrayed.

While it may be difficult to contemplate the right response to such tragedies, there is no reason to allow these actions to go unchallenged.

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.

Keeping your children safe during holiday travel

The holidays can be a busy and stressful time of year.

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.

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.
