Liability when an auto-pedestrian accident happens

If a New Haven resident is harmed in a roadway accident, they may have the right to sue the party that caused their harm if that party was liable for the damages suffered by the victim. Liability may apply to a party who acted negligently, recklessly, criminally or who had a duty to act and failed to do so. Being liable for someone else's injuries may require a person to pay for the losses their victim has sustained.

How long does an injured worker have to file for workers' comp?

After suffering a workplace injury, a New Haven resident must report their harm to their employer. The reporting should be immediate, but if the worker must seek immediate medical attention to preserve their health and welfare, the reporting may be slightly delayed. Non-emergency incidents should be reported immediately, and workers who delay in the reporting of their harm may face challenges later on when they work to receive workers' compensation benefits.
