Millions Recovered For Injured People

September 2016 Archives

When can workers' compensation claims be denied?


Every job has its risks. Construction workers can be injured by faulty scaffolding, warehouse workers may be hurt when lifting heavy objects, and even office workers can be injured when running errands. Regardless of how an individual is injured, if the accident happened at work, then workers' compensation benefits may be available. This is no small thing, as workers' compensation benefits can help an injured worker recoup medical expenses and lost wages incurred while he or she in unable to work.

Evidence issues are critical when you are hit by a drunk driver


If you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit after a Connecticut drunk driving accident, you'll need to ensure your claim is as persuasive as possible. You need to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant was responsible for your injuries, but there are many evidentiary issues that can derail your claim and your right to compensation.

Chain of custody in a lawsuit against a drunk driver


Typically, criminal law and civil law work independent of each other. However, especially when it comes to rules of evidence, there is a lot of crossover. One area in particular where this can be seen is drunk driving. In a personal injury lawsuit against a drunk driver, as in a criminal prosecution against such an individual, proving impairment can be key to victory. In both types of cases, establishing the chain of custody with regard to tests and test results is important. Failing to properly do so could lead to a flawed case and a losing position.

Connecticut pedestrian accident leaves victim hospitalized


Connecticut pedestrians are in close proximity to moving motor vehicles on a daily basis. Whether one is walking on a sidewalk, getting into a parked car on the street or crossing the street, pedestrians put a lot of trust in drivers. These individuals hope motorists are paying attention, following the laws, and putting pedestrian safety first. Tragically, though, this is not always the case.

Economic and noneconomic damages in a wrongful death suit


Losing a loved one unexpectedly is nothing short of a tragedy. Surviving family members can be left with a lot of heartache and pain that can be difficult to overcome. While these individuals seek to do the best they can with handling their emotions, they may also be forced to confront another matter: the financial aftermath of their loved one's passing.
