Millions Recovered For Injured People

June 2016 Archives

Can a judge reduce a jury's wrongful death award?


It's never easy to lose a loved one, and the tragedy can be amplified when the sudden loss of a loved one is caused by the negligence of another. While the heartache is certainly more than enough to leave some families struggling to get by, they often also have to come to terms with the financial realities of such a loss. Medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages can shake a family's financial foundation and set them on a life-altering course. This is why, in these instances, it is critical that surviving families in Connecticut consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Notifying an employer after being injured on the job


When successfully sought out, workers' compensation can provide a significant amount of financial relief to injured Connecticut workers. But the process of seeking out these benefits isn't always easy, and oftentimes employers, insurance companies and the state try to find ways to deny claims. With this in mind, injured workers should inform themselves about the workers' compensation system and how they can utilize it to their advantage.

Our firm fights for victims of drunk driving accidents


A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed dram shop laws and how important they can be for individuals in Fairfield who have been injured in a drunk driving accident. Victims of these tragic wrecks have a lot to deal with, including recovering their health and figuring out how to pay their medical expenses and other bills. All of this can be challenging, especially when a victim is left in a condition where he or she is unable to work. A personal injury lawsuit may help a victim pursue damages, but when the drunk driver who caused the accident is unable to pay the full extent of the harm caused, dram shop laws can step in to provide additional relief.

State workers' compensation study released


For workplace accident victims in Connecticut and other states, workers' compensation is essential to their financial and medical security. The Workers Compensation Research Institute, a non-profit and independent research organization, issued a study comparing Connecticut's compensation system with 14 other states.

Dram shop laws and drunk driving accidents

When a person is injured or killed in an auto accident, it is important to identify who is responsible for the accident in order to pursue fair compensation. While there are many different contributing factors in any accident, if there is alcohol involved determining who is responsible can be an even more complex venture.
