What are some signs of bite infection?

As a resident of Connecticut who has been bitten by a dog, you will have to remain vigilant for signs of infection afterward. Though the initial bite wound can be traumatic, the latent harm that possible infection presents can actually be more dangerous on a whole.

Are dog bites more dangerous for children?

Victims of dog bite attacks in Connecticut can face extensive damage that results in both short-term and long-term injuries. But are some groups more susceptible to severe injury than others? Today, we at Loughlin Fitzgerald, PC, will examine one demographic that is particularly at risk: children.

Social hosts may be liable for alcohol-related injuries

For many people in Connecticut, drinking in private social situations is a normal part of everyday or regular behavior. In many cases, minors begin drinking well before the legal drinking age, often in the homes of family friends or even in their own parent's or guardian's home. While these experiences are common, they hold a great deal of risk for the adults responsible for the home or private space.

Pit bulls continue to be subject of attacks

Most people in Connecticut have likely heard stories about how aggressive some breeds of dogs can be. German Shepherds, Akitas and Doberman Pinschers are commonly among the types of dogs that people say can be involved in serious attacks on other animals or on people. However, it may be the pit bull that gets the most attention when it comes to discussions about dog bites and attacks. 

Can you become a social host without knowing it?

Some parents in Connecticut take a cynical view of teen drinking. They figure that teens are going to drink anyway, so they might as well provide their children and their friends with alcohol in their home where they can keep an eye on them rather than have them sneak around behind the parents' backs.
