When making the difficult decision to introduce a loved one to a nursing home, there are many factors to consider. The health and wellbeing of the elderly loved one is always the first priority.

With all the tragedies that can happen out on Connecticut roads, drunk driving accidents appear to be the most preventable of them all. For this reason, drunk driving accidents resulting in injuries are the hardest to accept and understand. All of that aside, those that were driving under the influence at the time of an accident that caused injuries can be held responsible. Injuries sustained in a car accident can be devastating to a family emotionally, financially and health-wise.
Filing a personal injury or wrongful death suit against drunk drivers can hold them accountable for injuries and deaths they cause. If you or a family member was the victim of a drunk driving accident, it is important to determine whether there may be an additional liable party: the bar or restaurant that overserved the drunk driver.

The details of the accident are few, and authorities are asking anyone with more information to step forward to help these parties sort out the details of the multi-vehicle car accident.

Our Connecticut residents have likely read or heard of cases where a healthcare provider misdiagnosed an illness leading either to delayed treatment and progression of disease or resulted in unnecessary treatment and invasive medical procedures.
