Checking out of a hotel with an injury? You have rights.

When you choose to spend the night in a Connecticut hotel, you almost certainly have the expectation that you will be safe from unnecessary hazards. However, injuries in hotels do happen, and they are not always the fault of the guest. You may think that your slip-and-fall or other type of accident was the result of your own clumsiness, but that may not necessarily be the case.

A big rig crashed into your car -- what now?

Drivers of cars and SUVs will always be vulnerable -- especially when they have to share the busy Connecticut roads with big rigs. Regardless of how careful you are and your safe driving habits, a distracted semi driver can cause a devastating crash in the blink of an eye. Given the size of a tractor-trailer compared to a passenger vehicle, a truck driver may walk away unscathed while you and your passengers might suffer catastrophic injuries or worse.

Safety measures and your rights as a demolition worker

Construction workers bear the brunt of some of the most dangerous, but necessary, work. These men and women do much more than just put up new buildings or roadways -- they must also take on the task of demolishing existing structures, many of which are incredibly unsafe and have hidden dangers within their walls.

How could a Drug Influence Evaluation influence your civil claim

Connecticut has strict laws that address impaired driving and protect victims of impaired driving accidents. However, proving a driver was under the influence of marijuana or other drugs may be challenging. Law enforcement officials typically use a Breathalyzer test to reveal a driver's blood alcohol concentration. If his or her BAC is over .08 percent, officers will file drunk driving charges. However, with Connecticut decriminalizing marijuana use -- even only in small quantities -- and more and more people using medical marijuana, how will authorities determine cannabis impairment?

How to pursue damages after suffering injuries in a car accident

If you suffer severe injuries as a car accident victim, you may be overwhelmed by mounting medical bills. Your inability to return to work for some time may further jeopardize your financial stability. Although you likely know that you are entitled to pursue a personal injury claim in a civil court, you might have some questions about the workings of the tort system and personal injury laws in Connecticut.

Personal injury claims can apply to many car accident injuries

Vehicle accidents can have devastating consequences -- even if they seem insignificant at first. If you are involved in a crash, you might be happy just to have survived, and if there are no obvious broken bones or blood-gushing wounds, you might even refuse an ambulance trip to the hospital. You could, however, regret this later, as some injuries only become evident in time.

4 preventative steps for avoiding drowsy driving

You may know the feeling of sudden and overwhelming fatigue all too well. Whether you have had a hard day at work or have spent your time doing other mentally or physically strenuous activity, you likely know that sometimes even holding your head up can seem like an impossible challenge. As a result, you certainly attempt to refrain from putting yourself in a position that requires your complete attention.

Is an informal settlement after a truck crash the option for you?

Motorists who travel on Interstate 95 in the Stamford, Connecticut area typically share the road with multiple commercial trucks that expose them to significant crash risks. Passenger car vs. big rig accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries -- or worse -- simply due to the difference in size and weight of the two vehicles. The financial losses suffered by injured victims or surviving families who had lost a loved one in a trucking accident can be astronomical, and civil lawsuits are often the way victims pursue recovery of damages.
