Safety tips for every driver

Driving a car is both a privilege and a huge responsibility. When you get behind the wheel, you have a duty to your passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, motorcycle riders and anyone else with whom you share the road. This duty includes making reasonably safe decisions while you are operating your vehicle.

One worker killed, another injured by falling steel beams

Any Connecticut resident who has stopped to watch construction workers on a large building has seen tower cranes and movable cranes lift extremely heavy loads. One might wonder what would happen if the load should come loose and fall to the ground. An incident in another state demonstrated the potentially tragic consequences of such an event.

Renovation worker dies after falling through skylight

Connecticut has many older, obsolete buildings that are undergoing either extensive renovation or demolition. The workers on such jobs face unique risks because the work itself often weakens the structure. A recent accident in Stamford illustrates the nature of some of these risks.

Understanding the causes and effects of wrist injuries

One of the most common workplace injuries reported by workers in Connecticut and elsewhere is wrist pain. Most workers use their hands, and the wrist is a critical joint that can be injured in a variety of ways. Many kinds of injury can cause wrist pain, and an accurate diagnosis is a vital part of effective treatment.

Wounded police officer still fighting for workers' comp benefits

The Connecticut workers' compensation system provides a claimant ample opportunity to appeal an adverse decision, but sometimes, the appeal can be unavailing. The case of a Norwalk police officer who was accidentally shot in a training exercise provides a sad example.

Rear-end truck crashes are completely preventable

Data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that 4,300 individuals lost their lives in crashes with tractor-trailers in 2016 alone. This marked a 28 percent increase over those who died in similar crashes in 2009. Some traffic safety advocacy groups argue that this increase in fatal truck crashes is indicative of the federal government's failure to change trucking regulations in recent years.
