Icy sidewalks and the ongoing storm doctrine

No one has to tell Connecticut residents of the hazards that ice and snow present to roads, sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and outdoor stairs. Often they spend half of each year digging out from snow and/or ice storms and gingerly making their way down sidewalks and across streets and parking lots to get to wherever they need to go.

What will happen to my dog if he bites someone?

If you are a Connecticut dog owner, it would behoove you to make sure that he does not bite someone who is on your premises and that he does not escape from your home or yard and bite someone. If he does, not only are you liable for any personal injuries and/or property damage he causes, but he faces death by shooting, euthanasia, or other means.

What you should know before filing a slip-and-fall lawsuit

Connecticut residents who have been injured as the result of a slip-and-fall accident often wish to sue the person they believe is responsible for their injury. FindLaw notes that these lawsuits where someone has slipped, tripped or fallen while on someone else’s property are considered to be a type of premises liability civil suit. Generally, the property owner or the person responsible for the property’s maintenance and upkeep is the person named as defendant.

Why call an attorney out to the scene of a truck accident?

When a consumer vehicle and a commercial truck collide, the results are usually catastrophic. Considering the scale of the damage possible to every party in the accident, these accident scenes can grow tense quickly.

What does premises liability mean for Connecticut business owners?

How can I keep from being a road rage statistic?

If you are like many drivers in Connecticut and elsewhere, the thought of being a target of road rage can seem terrifying. Few incidents are scarier than being chased down and possibly harmed by an out-of-control driver. It also seems like too many people are impatient and easily angered these days, which might create a road rage situation from seemingly out of nowhere.
