Detailing "The Fatal Four"

A good number of New Haven residents find a great deal of personal satisfaction in their careers as construction workers. There is good reason for such contentment; construction workers play a vital role in community development. Yet for all of the rewards that a career in the construction industry offers, it is also rife with risks. Construction routinely ranks at or near the top of the list of the most dangerous professions. Indeed, according to statistics shared by The Industrial Safety and Hygiene News, one in 10 construction workers are injured on the job every year. 

Negligent entrustment explained

Car accidents in New Haven are a fact of life. That does not mean, however, that you have to accept you being involved in one as an inevitability. The causes of collisions can typically be linked to the actions of at least one of the drivers involved. If it is discovered that the driver who caused yours had previously shown him or herself to be a reckless or irresponsible driver (and was not even in his or her own car), then you justly question who allowed him or her to get behind the wheel of a vehicle. We at The Law Office of George H. Romania, LLC are here to tell you that not only is such a question justified, but also one that might be in your best interests to pursue. 

Sandy Hook lawsuit ruling sides with defendants

The conditions and circumstances that might have led to one's unexpected death in New Haven may almost always be reviewed and scrutinized to determine what might have been done to prevent the resulting tragedy. If evidence appears to exist that suggest a person, party or organization was negligent in a duty to fulfill an obligation (and that said negligence contributed to an outcome), family members in cases such as these may feel justified in seeking legal action. At the same time, defendants in wrongful death cases might always fall back on the argument that no amount of planning or preparation could have prevented what happened. It might also be argued that their unique position absolves them of liability. 

Are you a trespasser, licensee or invitee?

When you are injured on someone else's property in New Haven, you might automatically assume that the property owner is liable for your injuries and their accompanying expenses. Yet premises liability is determined by your status as a visitor on another's land. That status details the duty the property owner has to ensuring your protection. According to the Connecticut General Assembly, the law recognizes three distinct types of visitors: trespassers, licensees and invitees. So which were you? 

Do you understand the basics of workers' compensation?

Connecticut readers know that workers' compensation exists for the purpose of supporting men and women who suffer injuries in the workplace. It can also support individuals who become ill due to occupational exposure. If you are an employee, it is beneficial to know about your rights in the event of a workplace accident.
