Litigation ongoing 5 years after explosion

Family members can suffer the loss of a loved one in any number of circumstances including a fatal workplace accident. A particularly catastrophic example occurred on Feb. 7, 2010 with the Middletown natural gas explosion at the Kleen Energy power plant. The blast occurring during construction and led to earthquake-like tremors that were felt 10 miles away. Six men were killed.

Connecticut's breathalyzer law takes effect

Until July 1, Connecticut law afforded a loophole to some drunk driving offenders that allowed them to avoid an ignition interlock device on their vehicles. An IID requires a driver to blow a breath sample into a tube before their car could start. Previously, a IID was required only after a second DUI conviction or when a drunk driver entered a diversion program.

Inattention to medical test leads to $3 million verdict

Incalculable acts of negligence can lead to a fatality and a wrongful death action in Connecticut. One example recently occurred where a jury in Hartford awarded $3 million to a Torrington man's estate and his widow for medical malpractice because insufficient attention was paid to his test results.

There are times that an injured worker may have a progressive medical condition unrelated to a workplace injury that is later aggravated by a work injury. Determining whether a worker may be fully compensation for a pre-existing condition and workplace injury requires close scrutiny of the particular facts.
