Millions Recovered For Injured People

September 2018 Archives

Fatal hit-and-run accident kills motorcyclist

There are many motorcyclists on the road in Connecticut. For the safety of drivers of conventional vehicles and motorcycles, it is imperative that they share the road and keep a close eye on one another. Accidents between a car or truck and a motorcycle can lead to severe injuries for the motorcyclist. When the driver flees the scene, it goes from a serious accident to a deadly accident. A rider who might have recovered had there been immediate care could die, making it a fatal accident.

What if I am told my workers' compensation will be discontinued?

Workers' compensation benefits are integral to helping Connecticut workers make ends meet and receive the care and treatment they need after they have been injured on the job. Being approved for workers' compensation is often a relief since workers will believe they will have the time and financial support they need recover. However, for many, it can be a worrisome time when there is a notification that the workers' compensation benefits will be discontinued. Understanding what to do in this situation is imperative if there has yet to be a sufficient recovery to get back to work and the loss of benefits would be a financial and personal hardship.

Construction site accident injures worker, hospitalizing him

Certain jobs in Connecticut carry inherent dangers to those who do them. People who place themselves in harm's way, such as emergency first responders, are obviously in this category. So are those who work in construction. It does not necessary need to be a building trade. People who are working on infrastructure such are road building and repair can also be in jeopardy for injuries in an accident with the accompanying medical expenses, lost wages and other problems.

Distracted driver survey provides surprising demographic results

Connecticut drivers, law enforcement and legislators are keenly aware of the dangers of encountering a distracted driver. When there is a car accident, it is nearly automatic that the first thought will be that it was due to a distracted driver. Research is examining the issue to delve deeper into it to understand who does it most often. One study examined age-related demographics and came to some interesting conclusions as to who is distracted behind the wheel.
