How can I avoid slipping and falling this winter?

As the saying goes, winter is coming. For you and other Connecticut residents, this means months of dealing with snow, slush and ice – not only when you are driving, but anywhere you walk. Falls make up a significant portion of personal injury claims, since it is so easy to trip or slip, especially when the walking conditions are less than ideal.

Toy and child product safety statistics

If you are the parent or guardian of a minor child in Connecticut, you know that horrible feeling you get when you hear about a child being injured or killed. When those things involve products that were perhaps defective or unsafe in some way, your feelings may involve anger as well as sadness and grief. The companies that manufacture products designed for use on or by children and babies have a responsibility to deliver safe products.

Dangerous toys and Connecticut's product liability laws

The plethora of toys available in stores provide fun for not only youngsters, but the whole family, as well. Yet when an injury from a toy occurs, entertainment can become a catastrophe in a matter of seconds. While a toy defect can cause general mistrust in manufacturers, Connecticut enforces product liability laws to protect individuals if such an incident should occur.

What should you know about premise liability?

Connecticut business owners have to maintain their properties well and always stay vigilant. If you don't, you could end up with customers injuring themselves while on your property. In turn, that can lead to a premise liability case.

Introducing the attractive nuisance doctrine

Outside of Christmas and their birthdays, there may be no time of the year that your kids look forward to more than summer. With no school comes the added time to head outside and enjoy adventures with friends. Sadly, as some of the Bridgeport residents that we here at Miller, Rosnick, D’Amico, August and Butler, P.C. can attest to, such adventures sometime end in tragedy. Kids (especially young ones) often do not fully comprehend the dangers that features such as swimming pools, construction site, abandoned buildings and lakes or rivers can pose. If you are not there to protect, then who is responsible for their safety?  

Understanding reasons for food recalls

Most residents in Connecticut have at some point heard about a particular consumer product being recalled from store shelves. In some situations, such a recall may involve a food item. The number of times this may happen is really unlimited and there can be made circumstances that warrant such a recall.

What is personal protective equipment?

Some workers in Connecticut encounter a fair amount of risk on a daily basis. In this case, personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential for mitigating hazards and ensuring all workers remain well protected throughout the day. To this end, it’s important for both workers as well as employers to be aware just what is comprised of PPE and the proper methods for encouraging compliance.

Make pool safety a priority this summer

With summer rapidly approaching, families in Connecticut look forward to lounging around poolside. However, accidents can easily occur at both public and private pools, and in some cases these accidents can lead to tragic consequences. Accordingly, it’s crucial for families as well as pool owners to remain vigilant against common risks to ensure the safety for all involved.

Must your employer carry workers’ compensation insurance?

You rely on your employer in Bridgeport for quite a lot, from compensating you with a salary to providing you with safe conditions in which to work in. Yet what if you get injured at work? Like most, you might automatically assume that workers’ compensation benefits will cover your injury expenses. However, what happens if your employer tells you that it does not carry such coverage?

What are some of the consequences of brain injuries?

If you or someone you love has sustained a serious brain injury in Bridgeport, you are likely aware of the damaging consequences head injuries can have on one’s health and well-being. There are a number of complications associated with brain injuries, some of which may even be life-threatening. While proper treatment and timely medical care can sometimes limit their impact, in some cases these complications will be irreversible.
