Wrong-way driver dies in crash that injures several others

There are lots of different ways that a car accident can happen, from side-swipes to T-bone crashes to head-on collisions. But, when a Connecticut resident is driving the wrong way on the road and causes a car accident, the consequences can be deadly.

What is the 'reasonable standard of care' in nursing homes?

Thousands of Connecticut residents live in nursing homes. Most of these people are elderly family members who need extra care and attention due to medical issues or simply the advancement of age. When the decision is made for an elderly resident to move to a nursing home, there is an expectation regarding the level of care and medical treatment they will receive. So, what is a "reasonable standard of care" in a nursing home?

Driver flees from police, causing fatal crash

It isn't uncommon to see reports about a law enforcement car chase on the evening news. But, it isn't every day that such a car chase has deadly results. That was the case in a recent incident that many of our readers in Bridgeport may have already seen reports about.

Why consider settlement in a medical malpractice case?

Connecticut residents who are the victims of medical malpractice can experience life-altering problems from the botched treatment. Doctor errors in surgery, misdiagnosis and prescription medication mix-ups can result in injuries or a worsened medical condition, and then the patient is left to pick up the pieces. In this type of situation, one option could be a medical malpractice lawsuit. But, these types of cases are, oftentimes, complex. This is why many plaintiffs will consider the possibility of settling the case before trial.

Protect your rights when you suffer from medical malpractice

Millions of Americans suffer injuries or illness complications due to medical malpractice each year. Unfortunately, some people who suffer from medical malpractice may not realize it. Others might know that their doctors made a mistake, but they think that there is no way that they can prove it. Connecticut residents need to know that they have rights that they need to protect when they suffer from medical malpractice.

The consequences of distracted driving

We should all be on the lookout for one of the most dangerous things on America's roadways: distracted drivers. With smartphones in almost every hand in America, it is easy to see how distracted driving has become a significant point of societal debate. But, every day there are hundreds of thousands of drivers who engage in this risky behavior. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that, on any given day, approximately 660,000 drivers are using an electronic device of some type while driving.

Victims can suffer serious injuries in car accidents

Many different types of car accidents can occur on the roadways in Connecticut. With distracted driving seemingly more common than ever, rear-end collisions are common type of car accidents these days. But, there are other types, such as rollover crashes, fender-benders, construction zone accidents and even head-on collisions. One thing that all of the different types of car accidents have in common is that the victims who are involved can suffer serious injuries as a result.

Over 20 people need medical treatment after recent car accident

So-called "fender benders" happen every day throughout Connecticut, but we all know that much more serious car crashes occur frequently as well. That was the case recently in Suffield, when a pickup truck reportedly collided with a bus that was transporting 20 people.

Car crosses centerline and strikes motorcycle in Connecticut

Most people know that in a collision involving a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle, the odds aren't in the motorcyclist's favor when it comes to injuries. A motorcycle's small size and lack of safety features such as seat belts and airbags means that should a motorcyclist be involved in an accident, they are vulnerable to injuries. Unfortunately, a recent motorcycle accident in Connecticut illustrated this concept all too well.
