“No Recovery, No Fee”

March 2019 Archives

When another person's negligence causes a victim to suffer losses

From an early age, some children will learn that life is not always fair. In households across Connecticut, brothers and sisters may find that they are punished for the actions of their siblings regardless of their involvement in any alleged wrongdoing. They may be asked to help in ways that are unrelated to any problems that they caused or they may be put to work on projects that have no apparent bearing on their lives. Sometimes people have to pick up the slack for others and it may not always seem like the just thing to do.

What can victims do after motor vehicle accidents?

Car accidents happen on New Haven streets each day, although many of them are minor collisions. They may not result in injuries, and in some cases the vehicles involved may be able to drive away without incident. The parties who were affected by the crashes may be able to handle the recovery of their losses through negotiations with the others' insurers.

Rights of trespassers who suffer slip-and-fall accidents

New Haven residents may choose to invite friends and family members over to their homes in order to celebrate holidays or other special events. Before their guests arrive, they may make preparations, such as ordering food and having their home cleaned. If they need to do repairs to important areas of their home where their guests may go, they may undertake home projects to ensure that those who they invited over will be safe.

When a large truck causes a crash, who is responsible?

Large trucks and commercial vehicles haul goods across the country with efficiency and care. The drivers who operate such vehicles are required to hold special licenses to ensure that they are knowledgeable about the special rules and characteristics that apply to 18-wheelers and other massive automobiles. However, despite the many precautions and regulations that are in place to manage the safety of large trucks on the roads, many are involved in dangerous collisions that put the lives of Connecticut residents at risk.
