Millions Recovered For Injured People

April 2015 Archives

Injured workers protected against retaliation


Workers in Connecticut who are injured on the job are legally protected against discrimination and retaliation from their employers when they file claims for workers' compensation benefits. Violations may result in civil lawsuits for job reinstatement, payment of back wages, reestablishment of benefits, payment of attorneys' fees and even punitive damages.

Does Connecticut remarriage end wrongful death survivor damages?


In Connecticut, surviving family members of a decedent killed by another person's negligent or reckless conduct can seek just damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Compensation is awarded to the decedent's estate for distribution to family members. These damages include reasonable and necessary medical and funeral expenses, compensation for ending the decedent's capacity to enjoy life, payment for conscious pain and suffering, compensation for the death itself and payment of the value of the decedent's lost earning capacity minus deductions for living expenses and consideration that a present cash payment will be made.

Drunk driving victims face difficult issues


Victims of drunk driving accidents and their families face numerous challenges in seeking compensation for losses and injuries suffered through the reckless behavior of others. Compounding these issues, moreover, are the difficulties accompanying the physical harm and loss of income that may be experienced in these crashes. Families often suffer the incalculable loss of a loved one.

Are car owners responsible for accidents?


Connecticut holds negligent or reckless drivers financially responsible for injuries caused to victims of car accidents. However, a party who was not in the driver's seat or even the car during the crash may also be held liable for these accidents.

Workplace injuries cost billions of dollars


The U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration reported figures from the National Safety Council that fatal and non-fatal workplace injuries in the United States resulted in $198 billion in losses in 2012. Taxpayer-supported programs, injured workers and their families bear the brunt of these costs, according to OSHA.
